I don't think you came across hostile.
I was simply stating that I will trust your research, but that there are no guarantees of them not hurting each other. Then again, some species will harm others of the same species, it is just something that happens sometimes. Then I said that I would be interested in the results if you did keep them together, simply because I find it a interesting idea that would be nice to know the results of. I am not sure where you got the idea that we were calling you stupid or that you wish to harm your animals, I know you aren't and don't. Sorry if my post came across as offensive in any way, it wasn't meant to be offensive.

Don't worry, i wasn't talking about you. I was also unclear about where the species I mentioned we're going to be kept, I only intended to keep H.arborea, P.lessonae and S.s.terrestris in the enclosure. And as I mentioned the P.lessonae I have are from a supposedly small group. I am starting to build up my collection, I am going to be buying buying six new tanks and buy lots (about 15) 60-100 litre storage boxes and convert them to vivariums. Which, believe it or not do actually make good vivariums if you make the lids suitable and choose makes that will not leeche harmful chemicals. I think this is where the confusion arose, I did not state that they would all be in species-only vivariums/tanks, I just listed the species I am planning on getting which I imagine made people think that I was going to shove them all in the vivarium together. But, thanks to Rodrigo's advice I will only be keeping H.arborea and S.s.terrestris in the outdoor vivarium, with the possibility of maybe adding a smaller species like B.variegata at a later date. So, you'll be happy to hear (and I am glad you told me!) that the pool frogs will be kept in a species only vivarium due to their predatory nature.

I look forward to seeing your results! I am trying to investigate some outdoor terraria here too, but afraid I am not sure I want to chance them in the hottest and coldest months. I'll probably wait until I have excess offspring to experiment with.
