Dear team
I am in a v sad situation now .my new Aro is not eating food from the day when I bring him onwards.its being 10 days now he is in my aquarium.
Only he is the one in my Aquarium

yesterday he eat some chicken heart and 2 live fish ( small) only after that even I try to feed him the same (chicken heart ) today he is not eating nothing
Normally I am giving him dry shrimp 🦐 he will just smell it and go away and today I even try hikari arowana food stick but he is not at all interested in food now.what to do??
He is simply getting settling down at one end of the aquarium base today onwards

Hi and Welcome to AC!!

How long has your aquarium been set up and what are your test results for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and pH?

Do you know what the seller or store was feeding him? If you know, try using the same food.

Aquarium is set up for 15 days 4 days before I introduce arowana I do proper cycling of water.
Store keeper tell me he do with dry shrimp 🦐 only
He is telling me to wait for 15 days to start fish to eat.is there something like that if we change the aquarium this will happen??

Fifteen days sounds like a long time before he might start to eat. Have you tried the dry shrimp the store keeper suggested?

How did you cycle the tank? Did you add mature media from another filter, use a bottled bacteria product or another method?
