mixing species is a very touchy subject. the species you provided are near identical in care requirements and a found in overlaping native habitat ranges, except the cuban, which has expanded its range to the southern US thanks to people. also, the golden treefrog is a Polypedates species, which is native to southern asia and indonesia. they are a larger species , growing up to 3 1/2" and tend to be more shy than the others listed. they would be possible to mx together, but i would leave them out of the lope for now. mixing grey treefrogs, green treefrogs, spring peepers, barking treefrogs, and cuban treefrogs can and has been done with great success. you must provide plenty of large leafed plants and hiding spots in th tank, allowing them to have their own niche in the tank. unless you hand feed each frog, the cubans and barking treefrogs will tend to eat more than their share of the food provided. and hand or tong feeding smaller treefrog species is usually hit or miss, some like it, some flee and hide. below is a pic of a 70 gal e-z access tank that houses a trio of whites treefrogs and a trio of breeding crested geckos. this would be a good style setup for you treefrog tank, though it is not necessary to go as elaborate with a background a such. just proivde about 10 gals of space per frog, plenty of hiding places, good ventilation, and lots of height for climbing.
