Yes, yesterday feeding with 3 little gold fish might be the reason for chubby. will reduce the diet but when i do that he is aggressive on other fish.
can you help me why there is a light white layer on the fins, is that any disease or normal. and how old is he any guess, as i don't know to judge.
Glad to see you back Bonytang But your comment made me think, maybe my Aros are also getting kind of chubby, at 12-12.5" perhaps I should change from twice a day feeding to once a day. I started at once a day but went to twice a day hoping it would calm down my hot-headed Gold Xback (didn't work lol).Pagoda gold back in the day from a few farms in Singapore but now golden rose splendour high back with maybe a little BBXB in there. Grooming recommendation: change up some lighting and possibly lighter substrate + relax on feeding bc he looking chubby for his age a little bit
congrats on new aro man! got a new baby sturgeon & 2 motoro in the last month just getting them acclimated. in the pic it looks like he's built like a tank! that size already is mature i'm thinking he could probably be ok with just 1 feeding every 2 days...gives time to gut load some feeders for him/herGlad to see you back Bonytang But your comment made me think, maybe my Aros are also getting kind of chubby, at 12-12.5" perhaps I should change from twice a day feeding to once a day.

Noted bro, Already planning to change the Driftwood to small one and also the bottom gravel change to white color. Current having a mixed one. Once changed will update the photos for the view point.Nice new Aro and welcome to the forum! Frankly at that age/size I myself couldn't say exactly what's in his/her blood -- out of curiosity what were some of the names your Aquarium was throwing out?
In any case I'd personally recommend feeding frozen food (shrimp/white fish, etc.) and pellets instead of the feeder fish (esp. gold fish, which have little in the way of good nutritional value), soon as you could get it switched over -- just too much chance for disease transmission to your lovely Aro. One other thing that would be stressing me a bit was that (beautiful) piece of driftwood in the tank. Nice as it is, if your Aro jumps and lands on the pointier sections (or does one of those freaking-out-power-swims back and forth at the surface), it could get injured (maybe lightly, maybe seriously), just my personal advice. Best of luck Rahul, keep us updated as it grows out.
