Fortunately they were too concerned with each other to care when I walked in, opened the cage and started taking pictures.

The way I see it, if _the_ beginner frog (let's admit it, anytime someone asks for the best beginner frog at least half the people say "leucs!") that is fairly non-territorial, relatively easy to take care of and keep alive can express aggression toward its fellow brothern, what do you think could happen when introducing more than one species to a small enclosure?
This has absolutely nothing to do with mixing. If you have two same sex conspecifics, they may fight. This isn't any more an issue with mixing than with same species, as your post proves.

honestly, your post is a counterpoint to one of the arguments against mixing.
