Default Newb question

Just a quick question- I know it isn't ok to hybrid frog species but I was wondering if it is ok to hybridize beetween lines of frogs.
Ex.- G and B auratus from black jungle bred with G and B from Josh's Frogs.

Yes, you can mix frogs of the same morph. The same frog from 2 different sources.

It's just a little bit more complicated than that.

This hobby is perpetually leaning more toward preserving localities. Localities are better methods of ensuring that you have frogs in your collection that best represent those found in nature. Thus, it's best if you make sure that if you have locality data on your frogs you breed within that locality. Most (all?) of your Tor Linbo line frogs (for example) don't have site data where as most (all?) Understory line frogs (for example) do. It's generally accepted that Linbo frogs and UE frogs shouldn't be mixed even if they are considered to be the same morph just because it's difficult to ensure that the original import frogs originated from the same area.
