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.

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.
