Species mixing is a horrible idea when it comes to reptiles and amphibians!!!!!!!!!!!!
In the other reply the individual said you could house tree-frogs with california newts. This is asking for problems. California newts and related species (Taricha sp.) are the most toxic amphbians in North America. There are documented cases of people eating them on a dare and getting very ill, then die. So if the toxins could kill a human think what it could do to a tree-frog.

As in the previous post most people will justify species mixing by saying, "well they have been fine from what I can tell". Until one day you come home and see one of your captives killing and eating the other!!
