 Guys  please  HELP..!!  My  asian  pearl  arowana  (20  months  old,  12"  in  size)  has  suddenly  stopped  eating.  First  I  thought  it  was  just  throwing  an  occasional  fuss,  but  now  it's  been  almost  a  month.  I  is  showing  no  signs  of  bloat  /  infection  /  disease,  not  is  it  looking  under  fed  from  any  angle,  even  though  it  has  not  eaten.  I  treated  the  water  with  epsom  salt.....no  change.  I  gave  her  metronidazole....no  effect.  I  treated  the  water  with  Terramycin  and  Chloramphenicol....still  it  won't  eat.  Please  help.  Looks  wise  it  is  completely  healthy.  Oh,  by  the  way,  it  is  housed  in  a  14  gallon  30"  tank.  Weekly  50%  water  change.  I  know  I  need  to  get  her  a  bigger  home,  but  for  now  please  help  me  in  getting  her  to  eat.  Till  now  I  have  been  feeding  her  only  live  fish  (goldfish  and  koi)  In  the  last  month  it  has  eaten  only  one  goldfish  and  one  koi.  Twice  it  ate  azoos  arowana  sticks.  
 
 Is  it  on  a  strike  for  a  bigger  home???!!!
 
 Guys,  please  advise.

 It  could  be  on  a  hunger  strike  for  several  reasons..
 
 1.Feeders  are  bad  for  health  for  fish..  Esp,feeder  goldfish  and  koi.
 
 2.There  is  a  possibilty  of  the  aro  having  an  internal  infection  caused  by  parasites,  from  the  feeders.
 
 
 Well  i  suggest  u  do  a  50%  water  change  and  bump  the  temp..  Try  feeding  him  tom..  It  may  also  be  becoz  of  the  tank  size..

 Hi  Tims,
 
 Treat  the  guy  with  AZOO  Anti  Banteria  Powder/Tab  or  with  BeFuran  @  30  degree  temperature.  He  is  suffering  from  bacterial  infection.

 1  thing  for  sure  that  your  arowana  is  cramped  in  a  14  gallon  tank.
 and  also  as  they  are  heavy  grazers  and  produce  large  waste  this  will  led  to  infection  problem  if  regular  wc  is  not  followed  .
 so  follow  the  procedure  as  rocky  said  this  might  solve  your  problem  temporarily  but  1st  and  foremost  transfer  it  to  a  bigger  tank

 Generally,  goldfish  and  koi  are  low-protien/hi-fat  food.   If  your  arowana  has  enough  fat  reserves,  it  may  not  eat  until  its  sufficiently  used  up.   As  long  as  its  healthy  and  doesn't  have  clamped  fins  or  dull  eyes,  I  wouldn't  worry  much  about  its  apetite.
 
 P.S:  Pearl  arowanans  a.k.a  Sceleropages  jardini  (if  that  is  what  you  are  having)  are  from  Australia.

 If  feeders  are  bad  for  health,  please  suggest  a  suitable  substitute.  Is  lean  chicken  alright?  Or  liver???  What  is  the  ideal  food.  I  sometimes  feed  her  Azoo  Arowana  sticks  but  she  makes  a  whole  mess  of  it.  She  eats  half  and  crushes  and  spits  out  the  rest  and  then  I  have  to  do  a  WC
