      I did the DIY LED light. He's doing good now. Still a little shy and hesitant when other fish are around to eat but it's eating now.

      Is it normal for silvers to be so pinkish/red at this size

      I'm sure they tend to get a pinkish colour when there young

      Man, I missed this thread somehow...glad you got another one. No fish has been as frustrating yet rewarding to keep as a silver arowana, and I've kept a hell of a lot of fish over the years! I absolutely love mine, but it's been a journey! Getting a silver comfortable and eating well is the first challenge...keeping them in a big enough tank is the next challenge. They let you know when it's time to upgrade. They get jumpy and skittish, and eventually will stop eating when they feel confined. Takes real dedication to keep a silver arowana happy. Plan on eventually setting up an epic large tank in the future...like 10 × 4 or even bigger is much better. Sounds crazy, but these fish have the potential to get truly enormous. I know of one silver aro in captivity that is over 50 inches!!

      Thanks. Woke up today and saw it has swim bladder. I was over feeding or the pieces where too big.

      Doing a little better now. Before it was swimming upside down. Now it's swimming correctly. Guess I got lucky

      Oh man...what are you feeding it?? Btw, I do not feed mine pellets, nor any other fish for that matter. I feed mine tilapia, scallops, shrimp, and night crawlers. I chop it all to small bite sized pieces. When he was a baby I cut tilapia into very thin strips
