Why is this in the invertebrate forum? But to answer your question, I wouldn't worry most "algae" wafers are actually just processed fish parts that bottom dwellers prefer to eat. So it is pretty close to the frog's natural diet. I'm not sure how their digestive system works but I'm sure it can break it down. Just watch out for weight loss.

Mine sample everything that goes into their tank. They are many years old and breed regularily. I have L134s and a clown pleco with them, so they have access to algae wafers as well. I saw them try the algae wafers before too. Has not caused them any harm yet. They will know what is good for them. As long as you feed them their bloodworms, they will be ok.

20g L46/hastatus/pygmy corys, 10g OEBTs, 10g blue bees/blue velvet shrimp, 10g CRS, 25g L174s/BNs/L340s, 10g yellow/red tiger shrimp, 15g clown plecos/CPDs/habrosus corys, 15g cory fry, 29g Weitzmani/panda corys/BNs, 46g L134s/salt and pepper corys/BNs/rubberlip pleco, 55g SAE/L201s/L199s/BNs/kissing gourami, 75g L316s/BNs/L134s/CAE/silver dollar, 30g L340s/L211s/CPDs,10g tangerine tiger/snowball shrimp, 20g L134/habrosus corys, 10g CPD fry

I wouldn't make the bulk of it's diet algae wafers, but there's no real harm in it eating some. As long as the staple of it's diet is something meaty/protein like bloodworms.
