My african dwarf frog is getting himself tangled in the roots of a plant in my aquarium so bad that I have to reach in and remove him. Im new to fish keeping so any help would be appreciated

hello and welcome.
is it possible for you to cover the roots with a stone so he can't get at them,
would you be able to post a picture of the tank ?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

yeah you can do that,just be nice and gental when pulling it out,
so you don't damage the roots,and it should be fine.
