Default Cane toad and arowana

Anybody tried feeding cane toad to arowana? I found a piece of cane toad looking into my pond, i got a stick and hit it away, wondering what effect will cane toad have on arowanas? As they're poisonous. Thinking of how to discourage cane toads

Good luck to your aro.

A possibility of both the toad and ur aro died.

There's actually something that is call a toad fence, which is setting up a netting round your pond.
There's also another which is to put table salt mixed with water into a spray and spraying it all round the pond, I do not know how much to mix and have never tried it before but I think It's worth a shot.

Hope this helps

ps....I have not known that cane toads are in singapore, you sure you saw one....yellowish, whitish under belly and all?

Although arowana ate different food in the wild, I would not risk feeding domesticated aros with unknown food sources. ..

The salt mixture is not to spray onto the toads but as salt is a irratone on the skin of toads, they hopefully will avoid and go away from your pond.
Hope this clears up the intention.

Oh, the Philippines, then salamat and paalam

You can also put bricks round your pond if you want.

thanks yup want to prevent them from entering my pond, although i have a fence and stairs to the pond, i found the toad on top of the stairs. squirted it with hydrogen peroxide just to irritate it ill pour salt water next time, i'm thinking this one was planning to lay eggs in the pond.

But i think she did not die , when i checked this morning she was no longer there. hope she does not come back.
