Shiro at feeding time

Please take a look at the picture, shiro the turtle should be separated behind of the water filter at feeding time, so that shiro can eat well without competing to get food with the other fishes, because shiro moves slowly as we know the turtle always too late in moving, Shiro likes to eat fishmeal, as it said give me more boss , hehehe...

Red Parrot Fish

The mouth shape of this fish is like a Parrot bird, so it's called parrot fish , the color is black, red, yellow, orange, There is parrot without tail also, that colored brigthly red, very unique fish. We give to feed them with fish meal (pelet) and frozen worms. In the original habitat of this kind of fish, they will hunt for small fish to eat. Parrot fish move attractively. They were here since 6 years ago. This kind of fish is very sensitive with a white spot disease, so that the sick one should be separated from the others and treated immediately, because if it is too late the small spot can spread and become a wound infection that can spread and make the fish die, so we must to take care to this fish very carefully..

Papua Silver Arwana

This kind of fish are from the eastern region of Indonesia (Papua), so more familiar with Papua Arwana. They have a slightly different form than their colleagues the Kalimantan arwana silver, their shape tend to be smaller and shorter, but more aggressive, so that should be kept apart in a separate aquarium, because if it is placed with a Kalimantan silver or the other fishes in the same aquarium, it will attack them aggressively, and will make stress for the others. We feed the Arwana silver Papua same as like Silver Arwana Kalimantan, such as a pieces of fresh fish, frogs, and the braid, mmm yummy... This fish is very fast in hunting a food. Their scales will shine if we give some ray of ultra violet light, very interesting and beauty. They have been here since more than two years ...
