Monday mornings, when you feeding them pets

Btw, how often are you feeding the Aros now Jibran, once or twice a day?

Also I'd imagine they might be doing some snacking on insects that land on the pond surface -- I've noticed that even in my 2 indoor Aros tanks they get some insect supplement between meals, as the screen holes on my lids are big enough for small insects like mosquitoes, flies and moths to go into the tank.

My feeding regimen is alternate day unless the fish are less than 6-8 months old.

ATM 10 arowana eat nearly 200-250 adult super worms.

I get a lot of dragonflies during monsoon at the pond laying eggs, also catching small water striders or other insects, real big dragonflies too, 4"+ in size.

I am yet too see the arowana try to catch any flying insect nearby the surface, as I haven't observed any insects near the surface. But my pond is rid of all water striders

Thx for sharing Jirbran. I'd like to eventually get on an every other day feeding schedule -- I was on twice on a day but then changed to once a day a couple of weeks ago after I noticed both my Aros were getting too chunky lol.

That said I think my fishes' total caloric intake isn't too different than yours (which would work out to about 10-15 SW per Aro if you fed every day) -- but your fish undoubtedly get more exercise in that big pond, not to mention living in active community setting.
