This what I've heard/learnt....

This may be due to excess feeding, could be oso cuz Aro was looking down for foods often.

Cover all sides of the tank completely with dark paper. Put a centralised light source, and switch it on for 12 hours a day. Try instead feeding little frogy or cricket(anything that float). Handfeed it if u can...if the Aro allows u too, juz dun let the food sink down to the bottom. Cut down the diet of coz. ohh...try locating the tank to a lower elevation. this probably takes roughly 3mths :|

Or splash it goes to the pond if u got one....it will recover itself in time, but living in a urban/city area...this might be a prob.

Last but not least...pray hard

It all started out west african...peacock and stuffs, then fronts..Burundis..species like Mbwie or Blue Zaire are hard to come by....then lastly, some south/central americans...Geos and stuffs....and then I give up the hobby Reason: Bored

I've no idea how it works...but in the upcoming seminar held by NAC, there will be a topic regarding minor operation on Aro. I'm looking forward to attend it, hopefully I can jot that down and maybe tell u more about it.
