reduce feeding when temperature is low. Metabolism rate is lower.
Take note of ammonium, nitrite and nitrate too. Bacteria react slower in low temperature too.
thanks I'll reduce feeding while its cold. will check water parameters later

Default How low can arowana handle?

What u need is greenhouse effect. 23 is no good... gf spawn 18-22. Salmon dies at 23... and aro thrives at 35 even. Get a few plastic corrugated sheets to cover ur pond... they r cheap... get u plus 5 there.
