Fertilize with Seachem Flourish at each water change.
Change 30-40% of water once a week. Last changed yesterday.
Moderately planted with 1/2 stem and 1/2 slender leaved plants.
Tap Ammonia .25
Tap Nitrate 0
My poor old eyes could be off on the ammonia but, the nitrate is pretty obvious.
OK, this is better, but there is still an issue. But at least the ammonia is in the source water, or as you say it may be zero. I wouldn't worry about this, especially with live plants.
The nitrate is high though, and that is simply the bio load. The fish are not bad (though more than a 10g should hold looking forward to maturity) but I suspect the two frogs are adding a lot of waste. I've no direct experience with these species, but I have read they add a lot. I would increase the volume at water changes to 50% of the tank, and make sure you vacuum the substrate at each change. This will help with the present stocking, but plans for changes would be in the best interests of the fish and frogs.
