If you want a good starter frog, that is ground bound (No glass climbing), try a fire-belly toad. They are abundant and hearty creatures that can take a beating if neglected. Only until you get use to having a frog. Don't forget, most pet stores will freely take back an animal if you feel that you can't handle it, or are just not entertained by it any more. (Don't make that a habit, and don't expect them to take back that Bengal tiger...)
The fire-belly toad will give you a run for your money, testing your terrain building skills, by jumping and trying to climb every obstacle it can. By bringing out small things like, how much substrate can cover the lower 2 inches of, once clean, glass. Letting you know that the hole that you don't want him to fit into, will fit him fine. This will also let you know if there is enough room, and how well your monthly maintenance is doing.
