    I suggest you check your water parameters. Maybe your water is foul.

    Ammonia spike is very lethal to any fishes. Do not use heater and salt unless you are certain with your arowana's illness.

    1. Observe your fish and check water parameters.
    2. Conduct a partial water change. Never forget to use water conditioner.
    3. Increase aeration. Do not use heater yet. Warm water carries less oxygen.

    Bloated Stomach could be a sign of Poor Digestion and many other factors.

    Do a Partial Water Change.

    In addition, I would recommend that you add Probiotic Powder to your live feeders for boosting of Arowana's immunity and Digestive System.

    Cheers

    Think epsom salt does help in reducing the bloat. Also can assist to clear the digestive sys.
