Hi Xingumike.:wave:

I cannot prove this one but I did heard of reports about scats succumbing after consuming Javan ferns due to what they suspected was toxicity.:)

There isn't a single explanation on internet about Javan fern toxicity except this sentence found from one site. There's another but it's quite useless to quote the same sentence anyway. All are found on the profile for Scatophagus argus only. The species being referred to are the scats. It seems clear to me that plecs and other vegetarians are smart enough and will unlikely to target Java ferns for consumption when compared to the unwitting scats.:)
It is reported that Java Ferns are toxic to this species.
