      For some reason your last post I missed. Sorry for your loss.
      You probably lost most of the bio bacteria so I suggest adding some media from another aquarium if possible.

      my arowana seems to be hard hit by the chlorine :(
      any way to help recover besides adding more aeration?

      Aerate with (nearly) pure oxygen from a tank of liquid oxygen or an oxygen concentrator.

      From Noga's book:
      Excess dechlorinator will decrease oxygen so don't add too much.

      Cooler water can hold more oxygen, which can be critical because chlorine damages the inner gills
