In your original post when you said " no your wrong. " and " what is that? " I took it defensively...maybe I shouldn't have. But when online, I guess it's always hard to tell. Either way, I'm not trying to cause harm to any living thing and you are trying to help. I understand the frustration of trying to help others, as I do the same on a different forum for fish and also did it at a pet store for quite a while. I'm also frustrated that you wouldn't give my input any thought....and further said things such as "get a hamster", which was downright rude. I read through your other posts, though, and I'm just guessing that's the way you are.
Anyways, I thought I had stated that I was interested in any type of setup..maybe I was thinking of a seperate thread elsewhere or in the past. But in my first post I did mention I had various other tanks open, and that I was open to all suggestions.
As for my experience, as stated before I worked in a pet store. And before we go off on that subject, let's just say that not all pet shops are bad. Anyways...we were kept some frogs in a 1/2 water 1/2 land vivarium with minnows, goldfish, etc. The leopard frogs and firebellys actually did eat them. And of course, the ACF's ate fish too. Waldo also suggested in his post that frogs wouldn't mind minnows in their habitat if they were for food....
But yeah...I don't mind keeping a specie only tank. The only thing I'm not interested in would be an american bullfrog ( just doesn't seem that cool to me. ) and mantellas/dart frogs because I just don't feel I can give them the diet they need. Actually, I just don't want to bother with flies, maggots, etc. But at least I know my limits....
So then....I guess I'm most interested in a active, partially aquatic frog that can survive on things such as Zophobas, Crickets, Beetles, etc. Though I like Pacmans so much, I may just get one of those for a seperate tank too. I don't mind that they're inactive, as most my reptiles seem to be that way.
