      Hey all i recently made the switch from saltwater to fresh and got myself a 6" silver aro. I have a few questions about testing my water. When i tested for kh it took 4 drops to male it yellow and 11 drops when testing for gg to make it green. How do i lower these number to get it 3 where i believe it should be right? Thanks in advance for any help.

      I think that a difference between fresh and salt is that this numbers don't matter as much, as long as they're consistent and not swinging. If I were you, I wouldn't try to mess with the chemistry of the water and instead just make sure that plenty of clean water is available for the fish...i.e. water changes.

      Probably should go with 30-50% per week, and then 50% or higher when bigger. Another part that is different between fresh and salt is that freshwater usually changes higher volumes of water.

      Refer RO water but if too much then tap water is fine, make sure you test your tap water PH to get an ideal about it. Do the PH test of tap water right out your faucet, and another test that your tap water already sit in storage for at least 24 hours, if PH is stable then you're fine, if PH change too much then plan ahead how you want to do your WC.

      Might hold him for a bit but for a fish that eventually reach's 3ft or more that might not end well.

      Depth is not really matter to Arowana, Aro need lenght and width, long and wide tank. Like other already said Silver Aro wanna will reach 2 feet like 1 and a half year, 3 years old Silver looking around 36 inches, i've seen bigger silver arowana that fold give away to my LFS cause it's way too big for their 300G tank.
