 Heard  about  cut  ones  grow  back,  maybe  they  will  grow  later.
 Here's  old  pic  of  my  Jar  picked  up  at  about  3"  size  with  tiny  barbels  (pointing  downwards).

 if  the  barbels  aren't  shaved  off  from  the  root,  they  will  surely  come  back,  else  i  doubt  they  will  grow  back,  anyways  keep  your  fingers  crossed

 Question?  why  would  anyone  'shave'  off  the  barbels?  I  mean  what  purpose  does  that  serve  to  either  party?
 
 Also  was  planning  on  having  3"  silver  dollars  as  potential  tankmates  till  like  an  hour  back  and  then  it  dawned  upon  me  that  I  have  a  Jardini  and  not  a  silver  Very Happy  and  recollected  what  happened  to  your  Jardini's  ex-tankmates  Very Happy

 they  don't  shave  'em  off,  its  just  that  the  barbels  are  usually  lost  due  to  bad  water  quality,  aggression  or  due  to  excessive  rubbing  against  the  glass  tank,  when  kept  in  smaller  tanks.

 u  can  actually  keep  silver  dollars  i  had  kept  10  silver  dollars  along  with  my  20"+  jardini  of  which  2  were  red  hooks  and  the  rest  were  regular  silver  dollars.
 
 i  removed  the  silver  dollars  and  sold  'em  off  as  they  were  too  skittish  for  my  jar,  because  when  they  go  running  for  cover  my  aro  also  used  to  get  spooked.
 
 actually  if  u  keep  tank  mates  with  a  jar  right  from  the  beginning  there  are  more  chances  that  the  jar  will  accept  them  but  u  never  know  when  he  is  gonna  get  berserk  and  think  he  doesn't  like  'em  anymore
 
 my  previous  jar  was  alright  with  bottom  dwellers,  but  my  new  guy  hates  even  bottom  dwellers  and  takes  offence  even  against  the  josies  in  my  tank.

 So  once  the  barbels  are  lost  owing  to  the  water  quality  or  the  lack  thereof,  the  chances  of  them  growing  them  back  are  remote?
 
 Now  having  tankmates  or  not  is  a  question  which  has  been  driving  me  insane?  Its  a  pretty  decent  sized  tank  at  4feet*18*12  and  looks  pretty  empty  to  say  the  least.  Am  planning  to  place  large  grey  pebbles  and  a  decent  sized  bogwood  to  add  some  character  to  the  tank.  Two  pots  have  also  been  arranged  so  lets  see.  
 
 As  far  as  bottom  dwellers  are  concerned,  dont  particularly  fancy  plecos  and  RTC's  are  a  "big"  no-no  in  any  given  case(  pun  intended).Loaches  (tigers)  are  they  suitable  and  are  they  truly  bottom  dwellers.

 remember  about  the  bog  wood  not  branchy,  some  nice  hollow  stump  will  look  good  though

 if  u  are  thinking  of  botia  dario  they  are  good  bottom  dwellers  but  they  will  in  time  be  eaten  up  by  your  jar,  i  tried  this  out,  there  were  somewhere  around  2  dozen  of  'em  which  got  polished  off  in  time.
 
 selecting  tankmates  for  a  jardinis  tank  is  always  a  pain,  if  u  select  some  thinking  which  is  too  small  it  might  get  eaten  up,  if  u  select  something  too  big,  the  jar  keeps  pestering  it,  till  the  other  fish  starts  attacking  it  back,  or  it  dies.
 
 the  only  luck  i  have  had  till  now  are  the  pseudomystus  siamensis,  and  a  few  varieties  of  synodontis
 
 
 my  RTCs  and  TSNs  were  also  bothered  by  my  jar  once  in  a  while  especially  during  feeding  time,  but  they  could  fend  for  themselves.

 Hmm  after  absorbing  all  that,  too  bad  for  the  Jard  as  I  guess  it  will  have  to  learn  to  live  on  its  own  as  this  tankmate  selection  is  proving  to  be  a  bigger  headache  than  previously  estimated.
 
 Hollow  Bogwood,  aye  aye  captain  will  keep  that  in  mind  when  I  go  venturing  out  on  the  driftwood  collection  trip  hopefully  soon.

 they  are  great  to  keep  
 but  if  u  are  looking  for  handson  experience  on  them,  i  have  none  for  now.
 
 as  this  ones  my  first  one,  so  i  might  be  doing  many  things  wrong  or  might  be  doing  right  i  am  not  sure  about  it.
 
 but  i  will  tell  u  what  i  am  doing,  i  keep  it  in  a  120g  along  with  4  bristle  nose  plecos,  and  a  few  rasboras  and  one  killi.
 
 these  guys  are  a  little  aggressive  to  the  other  fish  though,  as  i  see  him  constantly  bothering  the  killi  or  the  rasboras,  but  this  one  can't  do  much  damage  atleast  for  now.
 
 have  to  be  fed  atleast  twice  a  day,  the  food  has  to  be  as  small  as  possible  as  this  one  is  not  even  able  to  swallow  big  blood  worms,  if  the  blood  worms  are  in  bits  and  pieces  he  can  eat  'em,  but  if  they  are  a  little  big  he  usually  rejects  them  from  his  gills.
 
 other  than  that  they  are  quite  hardy,  as  mine  just  came  back  from  a  bout  of  ich,  it  is  still  3.5"  but  is  one  helluva  fella.
 the  most  active  aro  i  have  kept(  this  one  was  the  last  piece  of  the  puzzle  among  arowanas  in  my  case,  hope  i  am  able  to  keep  him  alive  till  he  atleast  reaches  a  respectable  size)

 Hmm  thanks  for  the  input...
 
 I  think  one  Arro  should  suffice  for  the  time  being.  Already  a  handful  even  before  i  started  on  them  so  an  African  arro  can  wait  till  i  get  fully  accustomed  to  my  Jardini..
 
 Again,  thanks  a  ton  for  all  your  advice.Appreciate  it.!

 he  seems  to  be  growing  well,  any  sprouts  of  its  barbels  coming  out  ???
 
 keeping  a  jar  tank  at  feet  level  is  a  bad  idea  
 trust  me  on  that  
 i  too  have  my  tank  at  feet  level.
 
 the  problem  is  they  are  very  very  skittish  as  they  grow  bigger,  especially  when  they  are  in  the  range  of  8"  -  14"  
 
 during  this  time  u  surprise  them  even  slightly  and  they  will  start  darting  in  every  direction  knocking  things  like  the  pots  the  wood,  and  sometimes  might  even  try  to  jump  outta  the  tank.
 
 at  least  till  your  aro  gets  to  14"+  remove  those  jagged  rocks  on  the  right  hand  side  bottom  of  your  tank.

 No  Signs  of  the  barbells  yet  unfortunately  
 
 This  one  is  not  quite  skittish  as  it  actively  comes  forth  whenever  its  feeding  time  (or  otherwise)  unlike  the  tank  busting  pacus  which  seem  to  run  helter  skelter  the  second  i  open  the  lid.  Does  seem  to  waste  a  lot  of  food  though  especially  the  shrimps.  Chews  it  spits  it  out  chews  it  again  .  In  the  process,  atleast  half  of  the  shrimp  is  wasted  and  the  remains  starts  collecting  on  the  floor  so  20%  water  changes  every  alternate  day  is  the  norm.  Also  at  times,  I  have  noticed  white  cotton  ball  like  poo.  Very  occasionally  though,  any  reason  behind  this  ?
 
 The  location  is  about  to  change.  We  are  in  the  midst  of  constructing  a  fish  room  so  that  all  the  tanks  are  in  one  place.  Currently  they  are  scattered  in  different  levels  of  the  house.
 
 The  block  of  rocks  can  prove  quite  fatal  if  it  got  bouts  of  skittishness  but  like  I  said  no  signs  yet  thankfully.  The  minute  I  notice  something,  out  go  the  rocks.
