I have a 60 gallon aquarium and I was wondering if I can put a dwarf frog or two in it But I am worried is too big. I heard they shouldn’t have big tanks because they are bad swimmers and need to breathe air. Is a 60 gallon too much for them?

Nope..
You're fine.
Add plants and drift wood and you are good to go. Temple plants and natural decor ime is spot on.

I suggest using beef heart cubes as the frogs find it on their own.

Good luck

What might be considered deep or shallow is relative. A 60 gallonmight seem high compared to a 20 gallon long, but at what depths are dwarf frogs found in the wild? I bet it varies with, let's just say, an avg. min. and max. They could be found in 2" of water or 12". I consider waist and even chest high to be shallow for many aquatic animals we keep in the hobby. I wouldn't be surprised if 2-3 feet is normal for these frogs. Of course heavy plant growth and other suspended objects or obstructions might help. The bigger factor, I believe, is to be sure the flow isn 't too strong since dwarf frogs are adapted to living in still waters.
