When did you notice your leak? Before or after you put the fogger in? The fogger may be set too high, causing you to lose water at an accelerated rate. If it is due to the fogger your water will get lower on the water side and at the same time your substrate will become damp. Just an idea.

One way to find out where your leak is...

1. Remove substrate from the land side (this is the worst part sorry)

2. Fill your water side with water (add a few drops of food coloring red or green are dark enough to be seen well)

3. (optional) If you don't add food coloring: line the land side with paper towels...the first place to get wet will be your leak.

4: If you go for the food coloring method you will be able to see with relative ease exactly where your leak is originating. Don't worry, the food coloring is easy to clean off of your aquarium if it is glass, and should leave no lasting residue that would affect your frogs.

Just a suggestion. I know tearing down your vivarium is the last thing you most likely feel like doing, but maybe this will help.
