I am about to do something which I have been putting off for 2-3 months now. Actually I’m doing this more because my wife got a feng shui master to look at our house and told us that my arowana tank CANNOT BE where it is now! It is supposedly causing our ‘wealth’ to drain away from us! Ok ok.. this is a discussion topic for another forum on feng shui and I shall not go into it!
Anyway, what to do? …have to make my wife happy.. As the saying goes, it is better to be safe than sorry… anyway we have spent the money to get advise from the master right? Better make the money’s worth!
Anyway, I have called the people who built my 5 foot tank to help me with this exercise. Since I am already committed to moving my tank, I have decided that I do not want to put substrates (for me, I am using small stones) at the bottom anymore. For the past three years, it has been a pain cleaning the stones at the bottom. Believe me, it can be really dirty. As you know, the only reason I put substrates is because I wanted to prevent my arowana from seeing it’s own reflections and potentially getting droopy eyes.
Anyway, I will be sticking a black piece of material at the bottom of the tank to prevent reflection. No more substrates will mean easier cleaning for me… Yes it will be a bare tank from now on! Oosh!
I am also thinking of replacing my red arowana with cross backs. I am thinking of either 3 or 5 baby ones. Will decide in a few weeks time on what I want. I will be taking my red arowana to the farm in the next day or two.
Ok stay tuned as I’ll be back with Part 2 & 3 & 4 & …!
