1. **Water Conditions**: The frogbit prefers soft to slightly hard water with a pH between 6.0 and 7.5. Make sure to maintain a water temperature between 20°C and 28°C to promote optimal growth.

2. **Adequate lighting**: This floating plant adapts to a range of light intensities. However, moderate to bright lighting will promote faster growth and more vibrant leaves. Avoid too low lighting which could weaken the plant.

3. **Nutrients and Fertilization**: The frogbit gets most of its nutrients from the surrounding water. It can benefit from an additional supply of nutrients via a liquid fertilizer for aquatic plants. However, avoid overdoses as this can encourage algae growth.

4. **Propagation**: The frogbit spreads quickly by division. New plants form from stolons (horizontal stems) and can be separated for replanting elsewhere in the aquarium.

5. **Maintenance**: Remove yellowed or damaged leaves regularly to encourage healthy growth. You can also reduce excess frogbit by regularly removing excess plants.

6. **Aeration**: Make sure your aquarium is well ventilated so that the frogbit's roots do not deteriorate. Good water circulation will also help prevent standing water around plants.

7. **Pest Watch**: Although frogbit is generally resistant to pests, keep an eye out for signs of insect or parasite infestation. If there is a problem, isolate the affected plants or use an appropriate treatment.

By following these tips, you should be able to successfully maintain the frogbit in your aquarium, adding a natural and aesthetic touch to your aquatic ecosystem.
