    I live in the U.S., so I can't help you with the breeders, but you really shouldn't keep frogs of different species in the same tank. What are the exact dimensions of the tank? Knowing that you can try and figure out how many of each species you can put in the tank.

    amazon milk frogs are called so because of the milky toxins their skin release, please please dont mix these frogs!

    its best not to keep frogs or different species together. some people claim that it isn't a problem, but other times it could kill one species of frog. Besides, when the White's are full grown they may try and eat the greens.

    personally, Im a white's girl all the way. I love them. They have funny personalities, and they are pretty friendly with handling.

    Only get white's if YOU want to, I have just had a great experience with mine. What are the exact dimensions? If you send them in inches I can enter them in a volume converter, and the rule of thumb with frogs is ten gallon a frog.

    You have a 92 gallon tank, and I know I said about 10 gallons a frog, so you could get nine, but since they are larger frogs I think seven or eight would be better in there. I am very interested to see this tank! Once you get the frogs, please post pics!
