When you add the isopods to the viv do it at night while the frogs are sleeping to give the isopods the best chance possible to hide. Ideally the isopods should have been added several weeks before the frogs, but you can still establish a viable population within your vivarium. I wouldn't worry about the isopods becoming overpopulated. I doubt that it will happen. Luecs will eat any young isopods they come across. You are more likely to run into the opposite: the frogs eat up the isopods faster than they can reproduce.

They wont eat all of them. The pill bugs hide in the substrate since it is more moist and usually has more food. Only a few of the population actually visit the surface at one time.
