dwarf frogs should be fine with a high pH, mine have been moved around in tanks between 6.5 and 8 and always made it. They should fine with small fish that don't mind a high pH. The thing with dwarf frogs is feeding. They are nearly blind and only go by smell, so you have to spot feed them. I use a food dish and they get trained to go to the food dish for feeding time. I can tell if it's their day to feed them as they as are hanging out in the dish looking at me, like hey. They usually don't do well on pellet foods, so I feed them frozen blood worms every other day with some frozen brine or mystic shrimp mixed in a few times a week. I use a turkey baster to feed them. Don't fill the tank to the top as they can escape if the water is filled to the brim. Very little water movement. They like to float on the water surface if it's still and any current will prevent them from doing so and they love to do that for hours at a time, so it probably stresses them if they can't. Feeding with fish and shrimp and snails becomes a challenge as well because they are slow to get to and find food and you don't want a bunch of fish eating all the bloodworms, so look for a top level fish that doesn't usually go near the bottom of the tank and feed flakes to the fish then the frogs at the same time so the fish are busy. The smaller the fish, the better as well as they won't go after so many bloodworms. My frogs have their own tank for all the reason above, feeding competition with fish, keeping the water filtered, yet still, etc.
