My Arowana Is Not Eating No Matter What I Do !!!

I have received many many emails from very anxious hobbyists asking for advise as their arowanas are not eating no matter what they do. So I thought this is the best time to advise you on this because …. my 3 arowanas has been doing the same thing for the past 3 weeks until yesterday!!! Has this happened to me before. YES and believe you me… it’s really no big deal if you take the necessary steps to fix the problem icon wink My Arowana Is Not Eating No Matter What I Do !!!

SO? What’s the first thing to do…… DON’T PANIC!!!!! icon wink My Arowana Is Not Eating No Matter What I Do !!! This usually happens because the water quality is probably not so good. People ask me whether I check for nitrates levels, etc but I’ll be frank with you, I don’t at all. If you think you have high nitrate problems, well… change the water! icon wink My Arowana Is Not Eating No Matter What I Do !!! I always do that! First thing I do when I see my arowana losing appetite or staying at the bottom of the tank often or it’s swimming patterns seem lethargic, etc, CHANGE THE WATER…

I have said this many times, this should always be your first course of action. It has never failed me until today. No point worrying about what to do first… AGAIN 1st STEP IS… YOU SHOULD CHANGE THE WATER. (Sorry for being naggy but I hope you get it by now.)

So below are the steps I took…
1) 3 weeks back, I change the water like usual during the weekends. 20 – 25% water change as usual. I also always add salt to it. Salt is like, lack of a better word, a tonic to it. I do not add anti-chlorine or any medication to it. No need for all these ok.

I usually do no feed it on the day of water change. I tried to feed it the next day but all it did was bite on the chopped prawn pieces and spat it out. I did not think much of it as it’s done this before. It did the same thing practically throughout the week but I thought they were just not hungry.

2) 2 weeks back, during the weekend, I change the water and added some salt in again as usual… It again decided not to eat for the whole week.

3) Last Sunday, I again change the water, added salt BUT this time, also added blackwater. I sometimes add blackwater as they do like this but it’s really not always necessary. It’s up to you. But the good thing is, it started to eat again yesterday. Was blackwater the ‘cure’, I really don’t think so but as I said, it does not hurt to add them if you have it.

So what is the moral behind this story? icon wink My Arowana Is Not Eating No Matter What I Do !!!
When your arowana don’t eat, DON’T PANIC. Continue to change the water as I did.
I know there is a quote that says “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results.” icon wink My Arowana Is Not Eating No Matter What I Do !!! Well, this quote does not stand for arowanas ok! In fact, you should change the water over and over again until they do eat. Think about it logically… there must be something in the water that is causing the problem right UNLESS of course, your arowana has inherent health problems that cannot be detected visually. In these cases, it is just bad luck as no one could have predicted that the arowana you bought has health issues.

Hope this will clear up some of your anxieties. Cheers and have a great day!

    Never suffer with bleak in your life. The father’s love
    is an affection that must be earned through trials, hardships, and suffering.
    She helped him buy furniture and a flat screen television. I even found a four-leaf
    clover once to give to my sweetheart. This lore is said to have been a symbol that she finally approved

    Constantly, she would find little things that would cause a slight bump in the road, and use
    those as “signs” that they were not intended to
    be together. I sense that you’re depressed but look,
    you’re so special and smart and pretty. One might say that we as a
    society truly needs to digest a double-dose of emotional Ex-Lax in order purge ourselves of the toxins that
    we have allowed to fill our minds; a mental colonic if you will.

    Learning to understand how your partner expresses
    their love and trying to express your love to them in a way that they
    can understand. You would always miss the person you love each and every
    moment of your life no matter what. As they were walking through
    the Mall they began to pass a pet store. It seemed that even if a potential date was sincere and passionate in their meet
    and greet tactics, I would still blow them
    off due to anger from past relationship fumbles. Sometimes there is love affair, but no
    marriage, because there is no mutual astrological link established

    A few months would pass by, and the process would

    This kind of feeling is no doubt pleasurable but it may have it’s roots in our biological make up rather than in anything mystical.
    This custom spread from Rome to France, England, and

    Even during the wedding feast the men were seated separately from

    Don’t ever give up on your dreams and on yourself.” She could hear her phone ringing as she walked up the steps to her rental house, and turned to tell Eric that she had to get the phone, but he was gone. Read it now as the sequel is inthe works. Is it something plausible to any person, or is everyone different in the way that they are swept off of their feet?

    You can look into someone’s eyes for the feeling of a split second, when in reality an hour has passed. So if you get to meet his friends and family – that’s a sing he has true feelings for you. The “want to
    be” is a state where a emotional person wants something to happen so bad that he or she will see it that way even if intellectually it isn’t happening. I promise you they will have the look of not knowing whether to crap or go blind. Does one ever truly give up on love or is it something that is always there and we are always hoping to find someday.
