But I never see the aro chasing them or anything! maybe at night when they sleep the aro gobbles them up!!! :blink:

But how come it's been like 3 days and there have been 15babies, did he suddenly decide to stop eating them.......whaa?


give it a week or so. if you want to raise them, maybe a separate tank is in order?

I have noticed that these last remaining GTs have gone through a massive "growth spurt" this past week, they doubled in size and are now so chunky, I doubt any of them can fit in the arowana's mouth now, maybe that's why they are the only ones left (it is of no surpise.....as they eat sooo much!and are always hungry!jeez...these things eat everything that I throw in there, even food intended for the aro :ohmy: )

I will monitor their numbers closely on a daily basis. if I notice that they begin to disappear a new tank is a must

on the slightly ironic good side, at least your arowana is eating.

No, sorry, I really do hope your fry are alright from here on.

Sadly the arowana jumped to its death today.....I got the tank completely covered except for this spot where the intake pvc pipe comes out, what are the odds that she would manage to make it through that tiny hole!?!?!~!#@!#$why does this crap happen to me?! And I was home!I could have saved the aro.....but nooo I was too busy on the damn computer
This is so frustrating....the 2nd fish that dies by jumping out....this is just ridiculuous....FML




The aro was beautiful, orange stripes and reddish fins....

I'm so sorry!

Like eels, I guess. If there's a hole, they will try to get through it.
