leopard frogs don't really need a waterfall and the water doesn't need to be that deep either. the water only needs to be 3-4" deep. viquariums are not good anyway so no big deal. be sure you have some plants in the water too. pothos is good for that. the treetrunk should not be under water but half submerged so they can climb out of the water and sit on it. wouldn't worry about a water heater either. and leopard frogs don't really need a heat lamp either. room temp is fine for them. you need some background on three sides. cork bark to hide under, get some sandstone/shale stacked with some smaller rock in between for a rock pile with plenty of ledges/overhangs. if you want a small waterfall just use a duetto filter laid flat with the hose attachment and have the water cascade down a small rock pile (lok-roks from the petstore are not bad for that). I wouldn't keep more than three or four frogs in a tank that size. they are territorial. I would also glue some plexiglass in as a divider to keep land/water separate and use bed-a-beast/composted leaves/bark nuggets as a substrate. these frogs will dig some.
