ok. first of all like I said put some large rocks and some live plants along the shoreline. the bed-a-beast is still alot better than spaghum and the bed-a-beast does settle so that it is not that big of a problem. but yes the water needs to be changed every other day anyway, no matter what your substrate is. nothing is maintenance free and I would not use moss collected from outside. it rarely grows in a terrarium besides that you are destroying some native herps habitat. just be patient. the spaghum is not a problem but you should try to put the crickets on some driftwood or somewhere so frog won't get a mouthful of dirt. have a large rock in the middle of the water, put the cricket on that, the frog will be there waiting for dinner in a few days.
