The local petstore was housing all manner of frogs (leopards, firebellies, Egyptian toads and even a pacman) in one 29 gallon "amphibian" tank. I "rescued" a White's treefrog, a pair of green treefrogs, a barking treefrog and a firebelly toad. As if this weren't bad enough, I put them in another 29 gallon tank with a firebelly newt. I still have the newt and the FBT (in separate tanks) but all of the treefrogs perished.
The same store had another tank with sliders, anoles, garters and rough green snakes.
I thought they had a clue but they were just trying to move their product. My new petstore generally keeps single species only tanks :)
