Default Retf morphs

Is it frowned upon to mix different color morphs in one tank? Would there be aggression issues like you would see in darts?

I have a standard retf in a 29g vertical and would like a lutino and would love to own a purple morph but don't want to have to build another viv. This would be their home.

There isn't a problem "mixing" Red Eyed Tree Frog color variants.Also, aggression isn't an issue. Nice well-ventilated treefrog tank by the way Thanks, JVK

Thank you, I build the vertical conversations myself. Much cheaper that way and I can make them exactly the way I want them

whatever hybrids would be produced should only be for your enjoyment...and they would never be purely lutino, or purple, or even red...

I've been doing a lot of looking and thinking, and most likely I'm going to stick with the standard color variation

Don't forget to mount a red light that does not heat up the tank so that you can watch them at night when they are doing their thing....good decision..

it is my understanding that the different RETF colors are not different locals like dart frogs, so its fine to mix them. and the offspring will not be hybrids. The different colors are recessive traits and could be produced by standard green ones depending on what the individual genetics of the parents are. in fact the black/purple whatever you want to call it...when crossed with albinos can give you pink. crossing a standard with a lutino would just get you babies that look like the greens but have a lutino gene. if the green parent already has a lutino gene (and you wouldnt know that by looking at them...I think...d I dont know exactly how the dilution works in RETF) the babies could be green or lutino.

I think the different REFT colors are kinda like horse colors. I think its like chestnut is DD palomino is Dd and cremelo is dd. then there is the black points gene which make the bay/buckskin/perlino. and then the roan gene will make any of the colors turn white as they age. so if you understand how the colors work you can breed to increase your chances of getting a certain color.
which is exactly what we dont want to do with dart frogs. but as far as I know it is acceptable to do with RETFs, or at least that is what I have been told

I appreciate the information, but I have decided to keep it as natural as possible as I am going to stick with "normal" color morph
