Hello all, my 4-5'' silver arowana which I just got this Past Saturday will not eat. I had him eating jumbo krill a few days ago and now he shows no interest in that at all. What do you suggest I try feeding him now?
Thanks, for all help..

Sixty two degrees!!!! That is WAY to cold for a silver aro! You need about 78

look geo ..........SLOWLY raise your temp to 80 degrees and keep it there ........but be sure to take a few days to get it there .......they need to be hotter rather than colder .......also you need to feed him black or brown silent crickets ........i guarantee he will take them but only after a day at 80 degrees ...butty ..that should do the trick provided your water params are in order

Ok the temp is about 77 right now.My parents won't let me use crickets. They escape the tank. Any other live suggestions? Or food suggestions?
