I say it depends on the species. Im not much of a conessieur (yes I misspelled that) so I have to speak in generalities. So basically, as long as they come from similar habitat conditions, and if neither can fit in each others mouth, then I say thats fine.

You can get a tree frog as long as they each have their own tank. I have a WTF and a 4 FBTs. I would not put either of them together. The Tree Frog of any kind can not handle the toxins the toads produce. It would be fatal and unfair to the Tree Frog. I learned that no other species, except more FBT, sh should not go with them the hard way. I read a book that said you could possibly put the algae eater in with them, I woke up the next morning and found my algae eater dead. PLEASE DO NOT PUT THEM TOGETHER!!!!

Strangely, I’m against mixing, but once I had pair of FBT’s and a squirrel TF, and they lived perfectly together, but I don’t know how. I say it’s possible, but I wouldn’t take the risk. there was some unknown aspect to that tank that made them both happy, but I don’t know what it was, and it would be to hard to replicate, unless you were willing to risk the frogs.

I have a fire bellied Tree Toad and three grey Tree frogs all in the same Tank. The get along just great and I have had no problems with them being together. I have pics of them climbing on one another and swimming together. They do not seem to be territorial in anyway and do not mind eating at the same time.

I agree, Do not mix the two. Fire bellied toads have poison on the back of their legs that is toxic to the other frogs and other species.
