I had one in my 10 gallon with very placid fish -- rice fish, sparkling gouramis. They are very cool and do add an extra dimension to a community tank, but they are dumb as heck. They will let food fall right past their noses. They have terrible eyesight. I targeted fed mine with a turkey baster, and it still seemed to miss a lot of food.
Mine actually ate pretty well and did fine with fish, but I do believe that they would do best with no fish companions, who tend to quickly gobble up the food before the frog gets to it. Mine ate frozen blood worms and brine shrimp like a champ. It did not need live foods.
Mine did not harm my fish, but it did tend to snap at anything near it during feeding time.
Fun creatures, but give them a dedicated tank and expect to do some targeted feeding, even in a fish-less setup.
