Live rock? Live rock is for saltwater.
As for other needs, you may want to find out from wherever you order the frogs from what they are feeding them. I have seen many shipments of young ADF's that were used to live food only and wouldn't eat anything else. They don't have real good eyesight, so food that moves helps alot. Live black worms if you can find them are a great food for them, but be sure the worms are rinsed well before putting them into the tank. Some of the frogs will also take shrimp pellets, though you may have to crush them up a little bit so they can get them into their mouths. If working with freeze dried blood worms be careful with water quality, that is a very messy food, it will pollute water quickly... and should not be their only food.
ADF's are very sensitive to water quality and pH swings, so if you can keep the water clean you should find them pretty easy to care for.
The only other prep I think of is to keep the water level down about 1- 2 inches from the top of the tank. I have seen these guys climb right out of the tank if they have enough open space to do so, and although it is funny to watch them stack on top of each other for leverage, its not funny when they make it over the edge.
Maybe Angel can add to this for you... especially in foods she's been using for her frogs. I've worked with fussy ADF's and those that would eat near anything that moved (at least tried to).
Best of luck to you!
