Default Aro station at one corner

Hi all senior

Something happened to my red. I think he got frightened and jumped.My wife told me she heard loud splash sound at night. The next morning I saw it parking at one corner like didn't dare to move. I threw his fav meal worm he doesn't eat. It been two days and he still park there. I had changed 20% of water and add salt. Anything I can/should do..

Bro, keep maintaining good water parameters is definitely a very good.


Suspend feeding temporarily.

Would help the aro if you have a night light for the tank during light-off.

Can also add black water into the tank to further calm the aro.

TS, probably your red kena spooked.

Btw, how big is your red?

My min min, 6-yr-old red, 25" literally lost half a dozen scales some 7 months ago. I can only guessed that it was spooked.

Refused to feed for more than a month.

Honest, I really don't know. However, once I added an automatic night light to side of its tank, min min looks more calm.

Suddenly, it began to feed after a 2-month fast

It was so strong sending a piece of the 5mm thick top glass panel to the bottom of the tank.

Will adding black water alter the ph? Should I buy the leaves or the black water. Which one better?

Don't worry too much...mine was spooked by tanning lights, hid under a driftwood for like 3-4 weeks then came out to the tank corner for a few weeks, I kept my tank lights dim and blackwater with Ketapong leaves.

I would hold off on feeding for a few days, mine didn't eat for a week but eventually came out to eat and then hide again. it took about 2 months but she's back swimming around. Don't change your living habits, no need to be extra careful around the tank, let her re-adjust to your life style.

Oh, make sure tank top is secure, my aro started jumping during this time.

Good Luck!
