I am not sure what caused the calcium deposit, but it seems to be under control now, I have scrapped 90% of the deposits.
I made a new thread for the issue and you can check the problem with photos...
No there is no zeolite in the canister now, I ll be getting it tomorrow as a last resort.
Zeolite right now is my last bet, hope it solves the issue else its going to be very hard to clean the tank...
Yes I did rinse the sponge pretty well, the deposits are hard to remove even with a plastic scrub and every time I remove them the glass looks cleaner but then it again reappears in less than 10...
Here you go,
These were taken right now, the tank glass was much worse before this. The deposits on the power head can also be seen.
The water is crystal clear and has no clouding.
I had replaced the mechanical sponge in my canister and replaced it with a new one after giving a 50% water change.
The very next day the front glass of my aquarium had a white buildup, I tried to...

A little research and I think I found the culprit, and I think it is a bacterial bloom and the reason for which might be I removed the mechanical filtration sponge the last time I did my water change...

My Aro seems to be doing fine but now I have a new issue.
It seems like a calcium deposit on my aquarium glass but I am not sure (It's on the inside of the tank).
I gave a 50%...

My Red Aro has been showing decreasing appetite for about a week now and is currently very spooked and is running is bursts of speed when someone comes near the tank.
He doesn't seem to be having...
Thanks a lot for the clarification guys. I just have one more question is it safe to start feeding him with Hikari Foodsticks, can a 9-10 inch Red Aro eat a foodstick whole or do I have to wait a...
Well the only info I have about the Aro is from the certificate, it was Distributed by the Wan Hu Fish Farm Trading and it also has "A quality product of Qian Hu Corporation Limited" written on the...
Hey guys I got a Red Aro yesterday and he is on a diet of shrimp and is eating well.
Just have a few questions.
They gave me a Arowana Certificate its says Red Arowana and below that Scleropages...
Thanks for the reply Crispy, I ll be getting a Canister first thing tomorrow.
Is a gravel filter a recommended type of filtration ?
My Aquarium shop swears that is it the best type of filtration...
1.Whoa well I gave him to my aquarium shopkeeper temporarily as he said he knows how to do that properly, besides I don't know how much clove oil to add to the tank.
2.I noticed something well the...
Yup its a positive dislocation and his jaw is bent to one side, what now :sconfused:
Thanks Crispy he seems to be healthy and is eating shrimps very well.
And yes I ll remove the ornaments and rocks asap.
Thanks for replying.
No this is my quarantine tank, I have him on medication for now, currently I have added an Anti-Bacterial and a stress remover.
He is one of the quietest Aro's I have had, he rarely jumps and I have...
Well he freaks out when I open the lid to have a top side look, will try it again tomorrow so I am not sure.
Here's his original pic when I first got him its a left side look and his left looks...
My Silver Arowana seems to be having what looks like a mouth injury, when looked from the left side the mouth is closed, but when when looked from the right side his jaw is slightly open, he is also...
Thanks a lot genocidex, that solved it, guess the termites got terminated thumbs2:
My Freeze dried shrimps container had a visitor today, it looks like a termite.
Last year my container of Algae wafers was completely eaten by thousands of termites.
I have no idea how they are...

Okay guys I solved the problem by adding a Powerful power head its a Boyu 2500 B and he is no longer biting his tail, though he tries to sometimes but actually can't due to the water current.

This link gives a contradictory explanation that it may be caused when the Aro panics, which seems to be my case.
Well then adding Anti-Parasitic medicines would be pointless isn't it.
06-16-2013, 03:41 PM
The contents of the medicine eludes me too, there is no chemical composition written on the bottle, it just says Paracidol - FW, Its says it can be used for Sleeping disease, White spot, Anchor worm...

No he is on Hikari pellets and frozen shrimps, I stopped feeder fish feeding 6 months ago.
Thanks for the link Crispy, Unfortunately there are no visible parasites on his tail as far as I can see,...

No the tank lights are always off by default, as a matter of fact I have even turned the main room light off.
