Please for the love of god dont go mixing morphs. We are always looking for new morphs in nature but we are NOT looking for man created ones. If anything mixing morphs is worse in the long run for the hobby than mixing species. Any mutt eggs you would create should be destroyed to ensure they never leak into the hobby. (Even if you planned to sell them or give them away as mutts).

The dendro community is very uptight about mixing morphs because we want to appreciate the frogs as they would be in nature. I shudder to think of the day when a dendro is classified as a "Super-hypo-tangerine-baldy-carrot foot...- thats 50% het for albinoism". Dart frogs have such fascinating characteristics (courtship, tad carrying, skirmishes) that I personally have yet to become 'bored' with any of my species only tanks.

As for mixing species; I have heard some of the small south american treefrogs go quite well with the larger dendros (ie: Clown treefrogs), small day geckos and even small anoles. However since you dont have any experience with dendros to start off I wouldnt recomend it.

My advise is to try your hand at dendros and see if you like it. Also, no mixture you create will benifit your animals. It will only have the chance of leading to stress or death.
