Hello. I have a 9 inch Silver Arawana and am wondering just how much I should feed him. I have him on pellets and freeze dried shrimp right now. Should I just feed him until he is no longer interested in food or? Seems like he can never get enough but I’m afraid of overfeeding him. I have heard to feed him small amounts three times a day at this size but I’m not even sure about that. Like I said, he will eat everything I put in there. I sure don’t want to starve him. Thank you for any advice you can give me.

I fed a Silver at that size once a day but now and then if I was near the aquarium I would toss in a treat. Feed at your Silver what it will eat in a couple of minutes or until you notice a slight bulge in its stomach. They are very good beggars lol.
