    Here's another oscar for you! - Slaphppy7   

    Default Arowana Tank mates

    0 Not allowed!
    Well my Silver Arowana has grown a few more inches in the past few months and he is around 10 inches now.

    He is currently in a 55 Gal Tank (US GALLONS) and I will be moving him to a 155 Gallon Tank (US GALLONS) in a month.

    I know he will eventually grow large enough and then even 155 will be small for him but I guess that is a few years away.

    So for the time being what would make suitable tank mates.
    Can a Silver Arowana be kept with another Silver Aro in packs of 2 or would 4 be preferable, should they be of the same size as my existing Aro?

    Do Pearl Aros do well will Silver.

    Kindly hit me with every possible combination of fish that would be suitable to be accommodated with my Silver Aro. (No Gars please)

    Once any Aro gets too large I will be returning it to the store so no problem there, Also I need to know what would be considered a large Aro in inches for a 155 Gallon Tank.

    Many thanks

    arowanas generally do not do well with other aros. they are very aggressive with eachother. pearls are the worst and rarely tolerate any tankmates. I have a small section about tankmates in the arowana sticky.
    your friendly neighbourhood arowanaman!

    I'm fine with him being that tiny tank (tiny for him) because your upgrading, but when he gets to big PLEASE DO NOT bring him back the store!!!!!! He'll suffer there fairly hard. I'm sure you'll be able to find someone with a pond or big enough space for one later on

    I've seen large Oscar with them. But I'm talking the Oscar's were over a 12 to 14 inches but they grew up together in the same aquariums.
    220g monster fish tank.
    125g planted wild altum tank
    55g kigoma frontosa tank.
    20g quarantine tank.

    Video of my 125

    large cichilids, plecos, catfish, a good combo would be a Aro on top and a tiger limanose, pretty big but not monster cat. not offense but id worry about saving for a 250 or 300 gallon tank, lol make ya boy happy
