You hit the nail on the head with that viv. My only suggestion is dont put babies in there right away, thats pretty big. These guys grow fast and I would use a smaller growout tank first so they can catch their prey easier. They wont eat the fish IMO. I quit harvesting my eggs awhile back and just let me tads fall in the water, scoop em out a couple weeks later when their bigger. That being said my tads are not disappering, so I would say your fish would be safe. The mossies do spend ALOT of time in the water so keep that in mind as far as fish that might pester/peck them. When the adults shed the tads love eating the skin. I was watching one shedding in the water awhile back and he had 5 tads hanging off him. It was hilarious.

Water filtering is done with a duetto. My tank has around 15 gallons and every couple months I pull the filter and give it a good rinse. Occasionaly scoop some fecies or dead cric's but any more the tads take care of that. Very clean frog IMO.

A viv that size could easily hold 5-6 adults comfortably. As far as tearing up the plants, well they are a decent sized tree frog and will knock them over if the are not rooted well.
