 Toto  looks  pretty  healthy  and  that  arowana  is  a  mammoth!  Does  the  arow  splash  much?  Does  he  get  along  with  his  smaller  tank  mates?

He  quickly  eats  them  like  spaghetti                

 
 LOL
   Â With  those  forks  I  am  sure  he  makes  pretty  good  spaghetii  out  of  the  worms.   Chuckle  
 
 The  Arowana  is  really  magnificant!  and  toto  is  looking  good  too!
 
 BTWfrom  the  picture  the  MH  seems  to  be  only  about  6  inches  away  from  the  water  surface......any  heat  issues  in  the  tank?  
 
 Regards

 Oh,  he  gets  along  too  well  with  the  smaller  tankmates.........FYI,  The  smaller  tankmates  are  its  food.  
 Yes,  the  MH  is  exactly  6"  from  the  water  level.  No  issues  with  the  water  temp.  Maybe  because  there  is  a  tempered  glass  cover  to  the  MH.
 Will  be  posting  the  latest  pics  of  my  Arow  once  i  click  them.  It  does  not  splash  much.  Only  when  it  sees  me  coming  close  to  the  tank,  because  it  knows  that  I'm  gonna  drop  some  feeder  fish  in  there.

 Here's  the  latest  pic  of  my  Arow  taken  from  my  phone.  It's  not  the  best.  I'll  soon  post  a  better  one.  (I  need  to  get  a  good  camera)

TIMS  wrote  (View  Post):                
yes,  I  have  plant  prints  on  the  background  poster.  You  can't  see  it  because  of  the  thick  vegetation.                

 
 
 The  reason  I  asked  is  because  the  pictures  aren't  clear  &  it  appears  that  somewhere  the  plant  prints  are  also  seen.
 
 Anyways,  see  if  you  can  replace  the  poster  with  Solid  Black  background,   the  real  plants  stand  out  &  the  aquarium  will  look  better.  
 
 P.S  -  The  background  need  not  be  inside  the  Aquarium,  it  can  be  pasted  from  outside  too.

 Sounds  good.  Will  do  it  when  i  overhaul  my  tank  next.  Actually  I  was  planning  to  remove  the  poster  and  stick  a  mirror  from  the  outside....It'll  give  a  lot  of  depth  to  the  tank,  visually.

 TIMS,
 
 While  it  might  give  your  tank  visual  depth,  the  symmetry  when  you  look  at  the  back  glass  might  be  a  little  putting  off,  not  to  mention,  you'll  be  seeing  your  reflection  in  the  mirror  and  that  will  be  a  weird  look.  
 When  you  have  a  fish  swimming  close  the  the  back  glass  or  towards  it,  you  will  have  a  really  weird  effect.....

 Hi  all,
 
 Please  follow  the  link  below  for  the  recipe  of  the  home  made  fertilizer.  It  really  is  awesome.  My  plants  have  grown  by  almost  7"  in  two  weeks  after  I  started  using  the  fertilizer.  I'll  post  the  new  pics  as  soon  as  I  click  some,  for  all  to  see.  You  will  be  able  to  make  out  the  difference  yourselves.

 There's  an  area  called  Princess  street  somewhere  in  South  Mumbai.  You  get  all  the  possible  laboratory  chemicals  there.  I  did  not  go  there  personally.  I  work  in  a  hotel  so  it  was  easy  for  me  to  ask  one  of  our  supplier  to  get  it  for  me.

 That  seems  to  be  a  very  simple  and  sucessful  recipe.  My  question  is,  do  you  really  have  to  add  all  that  stuff  to  an  aquarium  when  plants  seem  to  do  just  fine  in  nature  with  just  sunlight  and  organic  matter?  I  was  always  curious  about  that.

 In  their  natural  habitat,  they  might  just  d  fine  where  everything  they  need  is  abundant.  But  in  a  fishtank,  you  sometimes  need  to  add  some.  Plus,  I  have  no  soil  in  my  tank.  It's  just  plain  small  pebbles.  So  I  HAVE  to.  Though  I  just  add  about  100ml  of  the  fertilizer  every  15  days....that  too  after  a  50%  water  change.  But  BOY,  this  fertilizer  sure  is  awesome.  The  aquarus  plants  have  started  coming  out  of  my  2  foot  high  tank.  So  have  the  bananas.  And  the  leaves  of  the  banana  are  as  big  as  my  palm.  That  really  is  something.
