Hi you all,

a video of my tank, with mainly Silver Arowanas... I'd like to have your opinion on the "drop eye" of my 3 fish...


and also exchange informations on grow rate & feeding...

they grew fast from 8 cm to 75 cm in less than 3 years... and they seem to slow down with grow rate now... of course, I feed only 3-4 times a week now, but still... It seems they eat less and with less appetite... any idea ?

i can't give bigger meals because of the stingrays and the cichlas... they eat till they'd die... that's why I give less, but often...

thanks for your opinion on the drop eyes... I haven't checked the videos, but you probably saw the "right side" as the opposite side is very well "dropped" indeed... but it doesn't seem to disturb them at all... they still hunt above surface, they still chase after cichla if necessary (feeding territory) and they never ever miss a frog when I put 2-3 in the tank... even if the frogs try to escape by climbing on plants...

forgot to say that the 2 males are now around 85 cm... and the female is more than 95 cm :eek:

you're absolutely right... I realized my mistake too late to edit the title... and I still don't know how to do that afterwards...

Everything in the plaudarium looks so happy! From the plants down to the sand at the bottom and everything in between.
The silvers are massive and have great coloration!
Thanks again for sharing.

wow amazing tank looks great! and about the drop eye, its mearley impossible for them to avoid especially if there are bottom dwellers in the tank ive read that some people put floating objects in the water to make the aros look up more and to avoid the bottom dwellers but in my opinion i rather just see my aro with drop eye then a rubber ducky floating around lol, but no foreal its gonna be hard to avoid between dropping for for bottom dwellers and everything.
