    Idk if I would change anything to drastic keep the lights dim and the traffic near and around the tank to a minimum.

    Floating plastic plants could help provide instant cover

    silver dollars are a skittish fish, and will cause your aro to bolt whenever they get scared. You can try it if you want.

    I would keep the tank bare bottom and keep the lights above it off until it starts to eat regularly. Room light should be fine.

    He was very skittish and was not improving at all.. I was not even able to go near the tank he was that skittish..so as a last resort i put him into my 10 feet tank yesterday evening with other fishes ( i.e a silver arrowana, oscar, severum and SD,s ) no other fish is bothering him..

    when i feed other fishes today may be he start eating... just praying that he starts eating..

    6 days is not a long time for adjustment. I've had some fish take up to 2 months.
