african dwarf frog questions

I have had African dwarfs before, and they and snails were my favorite to watch so i wanted to have just a tank
with them and snails pretty much in it, maybe just one or 2 fish.
but i dont want them to escape or starve,
1) is there any fish that would be ok with them that wouldnt take all the food before they get it or should i just have them in a tank with no fish ?

2)im also worried about them escaping i have a lid but there is a gap in the back between the partition wall and the filter chambers in the fluval flex 15 gallon tank i have, if anyone has the same tank and has frogs was it ok ?

3) will the frogs eat shrimp ?

and 4) is there anything i should do to ensure the frogs do well? i read they can be sensitive ?

*The one thing i do know is they are kinda dumb with food, and i should put a dish in the tank to drop food into for them.

I wanted kuhli loaches but i dont think my tanks big enough so i scratched that plan.

People say that bettas can go with frogs because their long flowing fins make them slower allowing the frogs to get to food easier. They need the same heat requirements as a betta as well.
You can try feeding it a diet of live/frozen blood worms and target feed it (with tongs). The betta will also appreciate the worms.
You could also try guppies (only add 1 gender to prevent babies).
The frog may eat any shrimp or snails.
Also i had a tank that had a hole in the top and just cu a piece of cardboard to cover it. No fish escaped from the tank. You could also just try having floating plants but you have to make sure your frog can still get air.
