I have kept and bred both. Would not recommend since red eyes prefer much higher humidity levels (70-90) than tiger legs (30-50). You would be better off setting two separate tanks. Good luck with whichever frogs you decide to keep.

Yep, humidity for tomopterna is the same as callidryas. It's hypochondrialis that needs lower humidity.

In the wild it is highly unlikely to find two species of tree frogs occupying the same territory for a long period of time and they could probably tolerate each other for short periods but over the long term the two would become stressed. It is always better to have single species enclosures. However if you do, just watch for sign of stress and make sure they are eating.

I don't reflexively oppose this so much as I am cautious about a paludarium. Can we see it? How big? Neither of these are pond or stream-side frogs.

It can work:

--In a huge enclosure with a vented side;
--%@*#! pretty--you need some broader leaved aroids for these guys to sit on;
--stratify the enclosure with different plants, branches, etc.

So in other words, your tank should look more like a set up for arboreal lizards than PDFs--can ya dig it?

See the pic in D. Edmonds Tree Frogs, p. 76 That is how it's done.

Compare it to the pic on p. 46; definitely cool, but that is a rain chamber not suitable for these guys long term. (This set up, with it more ventilation, works for other tree frogs--green TFs, reed frogs, Theloderma sp., etc. )

Hope this helps.
