I have a 75 gallon vivarium with 4 firebelly toads and would like to know if I can put some fish in the water section of the tank?

Default Re: Mixing Fire-bellied toads with fish

Hi
I would NOT place fish into the water for a few reasons:
1) fish may have foreign pathogens that can harm your toads
2) toads may try to eat fish, damaging the fish as well as the toads
3) toads may get stressed out
4) toad's toxins may kill fish
Those are just a few reasons and it depends on the species of fish. Calm fish that are too big to eat MAY be able to live alongside them but just in case I really wouldn't.
