Hi All,

I have a Silver Arowana of about 16inches in my 5ft tank alone since it was a juvenile. The Aro was not as active and refused to eat since past week and was mostly at the bottom of the tank in awkward positions. Today i noticed that the aro was swimming fine and has laid about 15-20 eggs.
Was quiet surprised to see this. And yes they need a male aro to fertilize them.......
Now the question is How often will my aro lay eggs? And is there any other way than a male aro to fertilize them??

Never heard silvers @ 16 inches to be laying eggs.

You may have got a mini silver.

well i have removed the eggs from the tank as they get dissolved and pollute the water.
and yeah finally the Aro accepted the food after 9 days of starving.
