If I were you, I would separate the different species in tanks of their own because they have different habitat requirements. The leopard geckos, for instance, need a desert terrarium with a dry substrate (although it likes to have a hide spot with some moisture to assist in shedding). the firebelly toads are semiaquatic pond dwellers, and the toad needs a moist woodland setup. I havekept walking frogs (what species is it exactly?) but it also may have certain specific requirements... I would recommend that you set up some additional tanks to better cater to the special needs of each species.

You really need to seperate all of those animals.. NO ANIMAL should EVER be mixed in with FBT’s! They have a toxin in them that will kill other animals.. for 3 I would put them in a 20 gallon long tank half water and half land with a filter for the water part because it will help keep it clean.. and Coco Coir bedding and Peat moss and another type of moss(can’t think what it’s called its green though I get it from petsmart) and have a hide for each frog and several plants. and for the leos, They 1 can be put in a 10 gallon tank. 3 can be put in a 30 gallon tank. but I suggest a ten gal for each. and absolutely NO SAND!!!!! Paper towel or reptile carpet is the best thing to use with 2 hides for each Leo and a plant and water dish. Depends on the toad.. and I have no idea about the other frog... But They all will die if not separated and given proper care immediately..
