Well.... Myself and two friends got into this hobby just last year.
I have a single species enclosure, a group of four Leucs. All seem healthy.
Friend #1 got 2 Azueres 2 G&B auratus 1 Luec and 1 Cobalt. He has lost 3 of his frogs since.
Friend #2 got 1 Azueres and 1 Leuc. She lost her Leuc. (competition for food)
There are many reasons why I've had success and they have not. I know for a fact that I did much more research than they did. I went with a single species enclosure because of the research I did. I know some of the other PDF boards deal with the same mixing questions as here and almost all mixing threads I've read were started by people with almost no experience.
There are alot of questions here.
What size setups did they have?
How well were they designed?
Where did the plants come from?(possible contamination or fertilizer?
Were backup tanks ready in case frogs needed to be seperated?
How often and how much was being fed?
Were did they get the frogs?
Were the frogs in good health prior to be introduced?
What was the umidity levels?
Was there proper drainage?
If there was an atmosphere of open communication here all these questions could have been asked and the information could have been obtained. The answers to these questions would have greatly increased the chances of a successful setup.
