I have successfully kept several North American hylids together in a single enclosure (including Green and Bird-voiced Treefrogs, Southeastern Chorus Frogs, and Spring Peepers). However, this setup is much more problematic to take care of than a single species tank- it's easy for some species, especially smaller ones, to be excluded from feeding, and the larger frogs leaping about can potentially injure the smaller frogs. Some treefrogs (especially Cuban Treefrogs) readily prey on smaller frogs.

Bottom line: unless you have a very good reason to keep these frog species together (in my case, it was an educational display tank), keep them separately. It will be easier on you and on the frogs.
