The dwarf frogs should have a warmer temp than the goldfish. Goldfish thrive in the 60's, the dwarf frogs thrive in the upper 70's. They're cool little things, but they are very weak in nature, sensitive to water quality, and can be quite difficult to feed properly. Their main diet is live food, black/blood worms, and if its not live food, it is difficult for them to find it. The frogs will occupy similar territory to the algae eaters, and as others have posted, their aggressive nature will begin wiping out your fish... also your frogs. The frogs would be safer and happier if moved to a tropical tank with small peaceful fish and a lot of hiding places.
Because goldfish grow so fast and so large, water quality can be hard to keep up with. Watch the frogs, for as soon as ammonia levels spike, the frogs begin to deveolp sores on their bodies. I have seen very few survive a nitrite spike. Frequent water changes will be a must, but the frogs will still be safer in a different environment.
