    Do not even consider an arowana unless you have at least a 200 gallon tank.

    +1 to that,

    a 50gallon tank wouldn't allow for an arowana to move 1 inch.'

    give him a 500gallon tank, and it'll be the happiest fish

    I am assuming your measurements are in millimeters?
    well regardless, a tank that size will not suffice for an arowana. they are small
    in pet stores but please consider the fact that a healthy adult silver arowana will
    reach 120 cm in length.

    I suspect OP is in Asia somewhere. Arowana are a fashion item in some parts there.

    That size of tank offers a lot of interesting possibilities from a community to a setup for some small to medium sized cichlids. An arowana tank is, as mentioned above, not a real option.
