First off the answer on a fire belly toad or newt is no, it is because of the toxins. Many people even say not to reuse a tank or decor that has housed them.

Now how many frogs are in there? You already know that you shouldn't mix, and you do it anyways, but why are you trying to crowd the tank so much?

I have a 29 gal with 2 red eyes. That is plenty as they are all over the tank hunting etc. And my tank has 2 inches on part of the bottom. 6" is much too deep for tree frogs. They don't swim, and can easily drown. They need lots of climbing plants and trees.

You say that the frogs never touch the water, do they have a dish then? They have to soak to absorb the water they need not to dehydrate, they don't drink. My 2" of water has an access area for them to sit on rocks that gradually go deeper in the water so they have a secure place to soak at night.

I have noticed that most frogs that are comfortable in their tanks do not hang on the glass at the top of the tanks, but find plants to sleep on. Likely they are staying at the top of the tank as the presence of another creature in their area is stressing them. They like to come down at night to hunt and access the water and it causes them stress to do it.

It's also the wrong attitude that "they aren't a big investment" that you'd put them into a situation where they would die and it doesn't matter because they are replaceable.
