 afford  maximum  tank  size  to  arowana  ,  25%  of  water  change  s  necessary  every  week.  try  to  clear  unwanted  waste's  Â Â And  my  kind  advice  not  to  feed  gold  to  Arowanas..  just  add  two  to  three  tinfoil  barb  in  your  tank  to  keep  fungal  infections  away  .

 Just  one  piece  of  advice...  Please  get  a  tight  lid.  Even  small  hole  or  a  weak  lid  is  enough  for  these  guys  to  pop  out.

 I  have  seen  Madhu  from  salem  house  a  Jardini  comfortably  in  a  4  x  18  x  18  tank  along  with  eels,  birchirs,  The  fish  is  almost  20"  long  and  guite  stocky.....
 
 Tight  lid  or  aquarium  top  is  mandatory  as  Madhu  had  nearly  lost  his  Jardini  once  'cause  the  fish  jumped  out  somewhere  in  the  early  morning....luckily  Madhu  was  around  to  save  him...
 
 I  myself  am  planning  to  get  a  Jardinin  pretty  soon!

 hi  there,
 
 do  try  to  maintain  the  tank  temp  above  30deg  C.  Aros  are  normally  very  sturdy  fish  but  they  seem  to  do  well  with  elevated  temps.
