Why not? Its basically frogs without legs and a nice fat juicy tail. Just as long as its not toad tadpoles.

Best to get a test fish and feed it for a couple of weeks first.

Tadpoles is possible but make sure it's clean, IMO better to feed dead food and MP, as live feed contains parasites, you'll never know best to quarantine them before you feed to your fish. Good Luck!

In Singapore, very hard to find LFS selling tarpoles.. In Malaysia, really can get anything easily.

IMHO. Please check what type of tadpoles, as some of them are not eatable, good suggestion from bro to use test fish, otherwise, it is high risk for your Aro.
