    Freeze dried is really that bad?

    Is it bad for fish like arowana and Bala shark to consume fd stuff like shrimp or bloodworm? I heard that soaking may help a little. If so, what's the maximum days of freeze dried stuff to feed per week?
    I'm kind of interested on you guys feeding schedule for fish like arowana.

    I have some left over froze brine shrimp. Wondering how to feed them to arowana.

    I've read that freeze dried foods are less nutrient dense and should be soaked first to aid in digestion. If you wanted to use them, IMO I would just add them ocassionally. I personally don't use freeze dried.

    I've never owned an arowana (jealous), but know they are top feeders. Do they go after things that sink?

    My friend has an arowana in his 130. And I know he feeds him crickets.

    One of my local fish stores has three giant arowana. They're just amazing. They would probably answer some questions over the phone if you need information.
