Houston Frogs hasn't been in the hobby long enough to "create" lines.

If I had to guess, what they told you is more of a story to try to create a sales/marketing ploy than anything they or anyone else actually did. They've vended a couple of shows local to me, and I've personally spoken to a number of people involved with that group. They come off as very gimmicky to me with their "special" substrate with however many different cultures of "beneficial bacteria", etc., etc. It all gave me the impression that they were there to use big buzz words to convince inexperienced hobbyists to buy expensive things that they absolutely don't need.

I've also seen them play internet "expert" quite aggressively and often only to have their claims be refuted by more experienced hobbyists. Or, they fail to correctly identify a frog that's been available in the hobby for years. That was evident even at their sales booth where they had labeled pictures of frogs depicting the wrong species (reticulata picture to show Iquitos amazonica/vent, etc.). That mistake shouldn't happen if you're the expert you claim to be (or if you use your own photos of the frogs you claim to be breeding).
