    Hello and welcome to the forum. You will probably get more responses to your question if you post here : http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/aqua...splay.php?f=47

    With that said, How big is your tank and how big is your arrowana? What are your water parameters? Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate? Please be specific.
    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    When in doubt, do a water change first... Second, give us the full spectrum of the issue.

    Tanks Size:
    Water Temp:
    Amonia Levels:
    Nitrite Level:
    Nitrate Level:
    Age of the tank:
    Any other significant info that I missed im sure would be covered by others.

    I'm betting the fish is either in a new and uncycled tank, or an undersized tank with inadequate filtration, and infrequent water changes. It is now dying of ammonia or nitrate poisoning. Chances are its too late to save it.
    Tank size?... 10 gallon? 20?

    And I'm raising that with a suspicion that the demand for water parameters will have scared sasanka away.

    I apologize for my educated speculation, but I have seen this countless times before. It has been my experience on this forum that arowanas are abundant in Indian petstores, but tanks larger than 20 gallons aren't. I am afraid that these two paradigms will and should never mix.

    Glad to know im scaring members away by asking for deeper facts about the situation. Maybe write up a personally approved response for those who try to help and get it stickied like somewhere like SimplyDiscus does and we can all copy paste it when someone posts something similar.

    Dont worry about it. Apparently test kits are almost impossible to find there anyway.
