arowana have had him for 2 months he is growing alot i may be overfeeding him but his scales on his stomach alomst look like they are missing or gapped. he also has a a red scale on each side is this normal could it be from him growing so fast
He's in a 55 gallon for now I have a 120 I'm gonna put him in soon he has lots of room for his size now water conditions are good the tank was a little crowded not to long ago I have added some salt and upped my temp just worried about his stomach scales they don't look like rot just chipped or missing he eats lots and appears to be happy
thanks for you posts i have been sitting here watching my aro and i just found the problem i have 2 jacke dempsys and they are actually bitting his scales off next question is can this be fixed or is it time to say good bye to the dempseys they have already bit off a few more scales also i do plan to get him a bigger tank when he grows a picture so u can see i think he has enough room for now he will be in the 120gal tank in 2 weeks how long do u suggest before i get a bigger one thanks
