you are correct about the toxicity of oregon newts and the others, but what you must remember is that these species, along with most others don't constantly release toxins, but do it when they feel threatned or are being attacked. i currently have a pair of oregons with a juvie. savages thin toed frog. the frog is way to small to cause any grief to the newts and the newts could care less about frog, many times i find them sleeping on top of one another. you are right that most people shouldn't attempt mixed species tanks unless they have years of experience with individual species and have spent much time researching the needs of the species and setting up proper vivariums to house such species. i am in my 15th year of doing this and have had my share of successes and failures. i have seen the effects of stressed amphibs that are toxic to tank mates and it is not pretty. but i have learned over the years and found methods thta have worked for mixing different genus and species together. while you thoughts are not wrong, they are one sided and not very broad. for as many horror stories, there are many success stories as well, most just chose to ignore them and preach what is common thought. and ask yourself, where would we be if no one thought outside the box?
