Default Arowana scale issue.

Hi guys, i am having some issue with one of my aro scale.. recently i notice there was some black spot on my fish scale and then it slowly eroded or u could say that the black spot is eating in the scale. I ask around the shops and show them the photos and all sold me diff medication..

before u start off on any medication, u can consider to dose some salt to the tank and monitor from there...most external issues can be contained with a simple wc, temperature regulation and salt dosage...

i believe more advance aro keepers will offer their advise once more information (pics of sickness, aro diet, water parameters...etc etc) are made available.

hope ur aro recovers soon...

Hi Bro Noby,

No one here can give you good advice, if you don't upload your photo of your Aro to show the actual problem. Please follow Bro Dave57's link to upload. You will find the discussion and advice more interesting.

Bro, you mentioned the aro in question is in a comm tank.

What is the size of the tank and number of tank mates in the same tank?
