Home Pond Setup
Silver arowana are known to develop a condition called drop eye. Although there are several explanations and hypothesis said to be the root cause, there is really nothing to worry about as it won’t affect their general health except losing some aesthetic value. Instead, more attention should be given when they refuse to eat. In this case, look for signs of parasite usually by checking the stool discharged by your pet fish. You can notice that the poop will turn white if your silver arowana is suffering from this condition and the best approach is to apply the medicated foods containing antibiotic sold by pet shops which can directly deal with the parasites hiding inside. Sometimes it may not relate to parasitic infection after all and for general illness, work on adding some salt and bring up the water temperature at least 3 degrees higher than what you normally control in your fish pond. This will assist towards natural healing process.
