    In the breeding of arowanas, feeding is a very important aspect. In order to avoid the arowanas’ refusal to feed and various problems caused by decreased appetite, we must master reasonable feeding methods. Arowanas are carnivorous animals, and most dragons Fish recipes are frogs, loach, cricket, goldfish, grasshoppers, shrimps, etc. The standard for each feeding is based on the fact that there is no fish food left in the aquarium. At the same time, in order to better digest and absorb food for the arowana, the breeder should also follow the principle of eating less and more meals, and regularly, quantitatively and fixedly every day feed.

    Reasons Why Your Arowana Refuse to Eat.

    1. Long-term single food. There are many arowana lovers who are restricted by various conditions and only feed the arowana with one kind of food for a long time. Over time, the arowana will eat enough. When you find that the arowana does not gobble down the food that it usually likes very much, but chews it slowly, it means that it is tired of eating this kind of food.

    2. Anti-eating caused by violent turbulence of water quality. A large number of water changes and a large number of cleaning filter materials will cause damage to the nitrification system and cause great turbulence in water quality. Arowana has no appetite due to its adjustment function in a short time.

    3. The sudden change in the environment caused the dragon fish to refuse to eat. Due to the changes in the environment inside and outside the aquarium, the arowana’s spirit is oppressed and the appetite is reduced.

    4. Lack of competition mechanism, long-term food satiety causes anorexia. This situation mostly occurs in monoculture aquariums. It often happens in the polyculture tank of arowana and other fish. In the natural world, arowanas are forced by their own needs for survival and have a strong desire for food. In the single-breeding tank, due to the long-term clothes to stretch out his hands and the food to open his mouth, there are no competitors, and this desire is exhausted over time.

    5. Seasonal and periodic stop eating. This concept has been described in many predecessors’ articles. Through my own experience, I feel that there are indeed factors in this aspect.

    6. Food refusal caused by disease. Often, arowanas have no appetite or appetite after being sick.

    What to do with live food for Arowana?

    The freshly live food brought back has a lot of bacteria from the outside world. If the live food is not processed, it will cause the arowana to get disease or cause the water quality to deteriorate.

    Newly bought live food should be disinfected with salt water first, and then raised for two to three days. It is best to raise them in clean water. Do not feed fish forage when raising live food, so that the water quality can be kept clean.

    After rearing, you can feed the arowana. Before feeding, you need to check whether there are any hard spines on the feed fish. If you find that you need to pull it out, this is to prevent the arowana from scratching.

    How to deal with frozen fish food for Arowana?

    Feeding arowana live food is better, but it can also be fed to frozen fish. Of course, it needs to be processed before feeding, and it needs to be disinfected. Before freezing the fish, the water must be drained from the feed fish to prevent a large amount of production after freezing. Of ice cubes. Of course, frozen fish needs to be thawed.

    Knowing how to deal with forage fish, you should also understand how to feed. If it is live food, just put it in the fish tank. Arowana will chase after it when it sees the live food. If the fish is frozen, it needs to be tied up with a thin line and placed in the fish tank to swing the thin line to cause the arowana. note.

    Regardless of whether it is for live food or frozen food, there will be problems with whether arowanas can eat or not. If there is a problem with arowanas refusal to eat, it is generally necessary to find out what is causing it. It may be caused by internal and external environmental changes, or it may be If the water quality environment changes, it is necessary to ensure the stability of the water quality environment. Stop feeding first and rest for a few days before starting feeding. If it is caused by the partial eclipse of the arowana, you need to stop feeding until the arowana starts to eat new feed, because the partial eclipse of the arowana is not good for the growth of the arowana.
