First of all, taking them from the wild is not the best idea. It messes with the balance of food and prey. (illegal in many places as well)

Also mixing species is a bad idea, and can cause many problems including bacterias, fungi, cannibalism, etc.

Too many in a tank will cause health issues as well if not eventual death. Overcrowding is the main cause of loss in captive tads. Too many means the water quality will be lacking.

Feeding them could be a problem as well, because different tads feed on different things, and sometimes each other.
