OK, If I were ombining frogs and fish, I would want them to have the same environmental needs. Fish are aquatic. The only 100 percent aquatic and readily available frogs that I can think of are the dwarf african frog, or the larger african claw frog. And they cannot be kept with non-feeder fish because these frogs have special nerves on their sides enabling them to detect an slight movement in the water, for hunting purposes. So a fish living with them would be a constant stressor, and they would forever be chasing the fish, biting its fins (I tried having large goldfish with my claw frogs, lets just say within 10 minutes, that idea was a flop. frogs trying to bite the fishes fins, fish sucking on frog toes, it all went bad.)
And the dwarf frogs do much better in tanks without fish, for the same reasons. as for a treefrog, they need a mostly terrestrial setup with many branches to climb on, a small water bowl, and I could see no good reason for putting them in a tank with fish. Not to mention, many frogs secrete toxins which could harm fish or even different frogs.
Having two seperate, beautifully decorated and sparkling tanks would be a perfect scenario.
