 Hey  Shubhankar,
 
 Am  sure  in  kolkattas  terrain  young  frogs  should  be  easy  to  find  just  need  to  get  some  guy  to  catch  them  for  you...  You  can  store  them  in  a  small  tank  and  feed  it  to  your  arowanna.
 
 In  my  last  trip  to  Kolkatta  i  was  amazed  at  the  no  of  water  bodies  in  kolkatta  and  there  is  so  much  aquatic  life  there  just  need  to  venture  out.
 
 Dried  stuff  dosent  have  enough  punch  that  any  fish  would  love   to  eat...  
 
 Regards
 Adip

 Hey  Adip  Buddy...  :)
 
 You  are  right  about  the  dried  stuff,  but  you  know  what,  my  Aro  does  not  accept  any  dry  foods  at  all,  I  had  fasted  him  for  21  days  but  no  result,  at  last  I  had  to  resort  to  guppies,  which  I  quarantine  and  feed  them..  but  I  do  not  know,  whether  in  long  run...  this  would  provide  all  necessary  nutirition,  i  tried  with  market  prawns  but  same  ,  he  does  not  accept  it,  in  short  he  wont  accept  anything  which  is  dead  or  dry...
 
 so  was  thinking  of  trying  Crickets  and  see  what  would  be  his  response...
 Frogs???  What  about  the  diseases  which  it  may  carry?  how  do  I  quarantine  them.....?

 Hi  Shubhankar,
 
 with  crickets,  your  guy  would  jump  move  your  lid  if  he  is  big  and  the  lid  is  not  that  heavy  or  even  it  could  hurt  
 itself  with  the  light  unit  (telling  by  expereince).
 
 frogs  -  be  careful  with  the  wild  caught  ones,  if  you  have  time  n  place  u  can  have  a  small  frog
 farm  that  way  you  know  whta  your  feeding  is  free  of  Edit.
 
 not  sure  in  india,  but  outside,  edible  frogs  are  sold  in  markets  (frog  leg  fry/soup  is  a  delicacy),
 those  are  raised  just  for  this  purpose  and  in  the  very  strictest  of  hygenic  conditions.
 
 regards

 Thanks  Dan,  I  did  not  understand,  with  Crickets,  it  would  jump  for  what???  My  Aro  always  jump,  and  my  tank  is  covered  with  an  elastic  mosquito  net  so,  that  he  does  not  hurt  himself  in  the  light  unit  of  the  cover?
 
 I  am  looking  for  packed  dry  crickets...  can  anyone  help?

 A  long  time  back,  i  have  heard  from  someone,  catching  of  many  of  the  species  of  frogs  is  also  officially   banned  in  west  bengal.
 
 By  the  way  Subhankar-da(Oscarmadness),  i  think  it  will  not  be  a  very  good  idea  to  feed  live  frogs  to  your  arowana.  Its  only  safe  if  you  can  find  edible  grade  live  frog  from  some  safe  source.  Otherwise  live  frog  picked  up  randomly  may  cause  huge  problem.  Because  there  are  many  frogs  whose  skin  gives  out  poisonous  secretions.  A  simple  google  search  will  help  you  in  this  regard.  Its  better  to  play  safe.
 I  will  advice  you  to  continue  feeding  guppies.  And  as  time  passes  try  feeding  shrimps.

 Hi  Subhankar,
 
 I  used  to  go  frog  collecting  and  mushroom  hunting  some  time  back,
 in  India  you  have  only  2  sps  which  are  edible  and  can  be  safely  used  for  your  purpose.
 
 1)  Hoplobatrachus  tigerinus/Rana  Tigrina  (indian  bull  frog)
 2)  Euphlyctis  hexadactylus/Rana  hexadactyla  (green  pond  frog)
 
 But  wild  caught  of  these  is  banned  by  CITES  Appendix  II  due  to  large  collection
 and  use  in  schools  and  frog  leg  delicacy  export  to  Malaysia,  hence  I  stopped  
 going  out  for  these.
 
 You  can  always  source  them  from  a  scientific  breeding  company  which  breeds
 mouse/frog/leech/rabbits/hamsters/snails/zebra  fishes  etc  etc  
 
 but  you  need  to  get  in  bulk.
 (most  of  these  are  clones)
 
 hope  this  helps.
 
 regards
 
 Dan

 Strange  that  frog  catching  is  banned  in  India...Is  it  becasue  of  poisonous  frogs,  any  sp  in  particular..or  due  to  other  factors?!.  The  cement  pond  which  we  used  to  have  in  Coimbatore  used  to  be  infested  with  frogs...at  any  given  time  we  would  find  thousands  of  tadpoles  and  young  frogs..one  of  the  primary  reasons  why  I  gave  up  fishkeeping  in  that  pond.
 
 @Subhankar
 
 If  you  have  an  open  area  with  a  water  source,  I  am  sure  frogs  will  find  a  way  there  and  you  can  have  your  endless  supply  of  frogs  Smile...
 
 @Ajay...and  probably  the  only  place  in  S  India  where  you  can  get  frog  meat  is  in  Kerala  Smile  ...tastes  real  good  esp  with  toddy  Smile  .......
