    Hi there Isaac.
    Its not recommended to mix frog species as they secrete toxins that can be harmful to each other as well as the stress it will place on the frogs. You can always find room for another terrarium, I have a frog enclosure in every room of my house apart from the bathroom of course.

    Ebony nailedd it. Although they do have remarkably similar heat & humidity requirements, not recommended. The milkys secrete a glue like moisture that is toxic and I'm sure no good for other frogs.

    Another thing is size. I understand that Milks get to about four inches at the biggest and White's get to about five, let's say your White's is three inches and your Milk is one or one and a half inches? White's will eat the Milky. That's the first thing that popped into my mind when I read this questions, besides the toxins.

    Sorry it didn't work out. D:

    Does anyone know if he could build a barrier between the two frogs if it would be alright? As long as the barrier was secure and the frogs couldn't see each other regularly? It's just a thought if you still wanted to use your viv for two species.

    Here's the rule of thumb for mixing species: Different species of frogs should not be mixed together. However, you can house a frog and a unicorn together.

    That's probably your best bet anyway, the safest way to do it.
