Thanks, questions
1)what filtration do you have
2) measure amonia, nitrite, nitrate
3) do you defrost the food befor efeeding?
4) try blocking the back, sides to le aro feel safe
5) hold off on any additives, focus on good water, stable water
6) maybe tankmates are scaring it。
7) size and how long have you had it in the tnak?
>Can u post a video of the aro and tank it swims in? I suspect water conditions poor。

Thanks, Bro,
At the moment, I would suggest partial water change, adding aquarium salt and put in heater at 30 to 32 degree celcius。
Next, observe if there is any wrong with your aro as in since you had mentioned the LH died due to sickness。
Pls remember do not feed for the next 3 days, at least after you had added in aquarium salt。
>U might want to check your water parameter cause i believe your silver is stress thats why not eating。
>i am always changing water 50% and and putting only sera aquatan。 i dont think parrot fish fighting with aro because it swims freely but somtimes going crazy specially if i am wearing red t-shirt then he is getting wild。 i am not sure may be my aro is afraid of people。 my flowerhorn died in other tank but i am not sure if it affect also the aro。 when flowerhron was there and they are also not fighting。 since i put them together。 i didnt try the aquarium salt yet。
is there any possibilities even i change 50% of water disease still be there? also does the small pebbles (gravel) may may cause the arowana health? does iodize salt was fine to put as aquarium salt?
i am using powerhead filter, small pebbles as gravel and wood inside the aro。 tanks size 60cmx40cm。
Thanks,
>small pebbles may got disease hidding inbetween it, suggest u siphon the dirt that is trap within it。
put normal aquarium salt can already。
>Bro
Has the aro eat before? Or only recently stopped?
What is size of all ur fishes , including ur aro?
Fish never eat is due to sickness or stress。 Water related and new changes made
Did the aro go for food but never take abiteor totally ";ignored"; the food?

According to him。。 his aro is swimming normally and very active。 He has been feeding his aro and tankmates with dried shrimp all along。
Base on his available parameters。。 i assume water to be normal but kind of hard as GH was quite high
I ask him to post a video but not sure he will。 Advised him to try other feeders such as insect or frogs to test if his aro really has lost his appitite as his aro could be bored of eating dried shrimp
>Hi,
i try to used aquarium salt (sera mineral salt) then i notice that my arowanas color change become bright and right now it eats dried shrimp a little also 1 small fish。
i am still observing the fish activity up to now。 Does this aquarium salt makes the water hardness low/soft?
most of all products here are sera and tetra。 there are some Chinese products but i am not sure if they are safe。
