since you had recently bought him might take almost upto 2 weeks to get adjusted and take their food....otherwise it could be overfeeding...if he is over fed then he wont take food that often...pearl arowanas are from australia....Scleropages jardini...........in males the lower jaw is bigger than its upper jaw and will overlap it at the tip of its mouth.............
