Thread: Wowzers

    Alright, I've never been a fan of Arowanas. Always looked kinda creepy to me.
    But today I saw my first one in real life, up close, just a baby, but still.

    So cute, kinda dis-proportioned still. Maybe 5-6 inches long. Just, wow. Was awesome.

    I think that one baby Aro has changed my opinion of them.

    Something else to add to the dream fish list. Sigh.
    A severe lack of trichogaster.

    Just because your Gourami is sick does not mean it is always Iridovirus, DGIV, Gourami Disease, et cetera.
    Look at all the other factors in your tank before coming to this conclusion.

    They are beautiful fish--I never was convinced until I saw some at my LFS! But their tank requirements are too big for me right now, if ever.

    True for me as well. And really, I'd still prefer the dream of a solitary Hemibagrus catfish first. Or a school of Lima Shovelnoses. Haven't decided yet. lol. In any case, I am a catfish girl, through and through. =P

    One of my dream tanks is one of just black ghosts.

    Not sure I'll ever realize that one,

    Arowanas are interesting. I also saw a small little baby at a fish store the other day. He stopped to stare at me. Cute, but still a creepy fish

    the statement below is false
    the statement above is true
    which one is true?
    Got a small tank? Check out Fishalicious' small fish list!
    Got a big fish you just can't handle? Check out Monster Fish Rescue!

    There is nothing like watching an arowana in your living room everyday. So graceful, yet so MONSTER! My favorite fish ever. I have many pics/vids of mine around the forum.
    your friendly neighbourhood arowanaman!

    They truely are wonderful. And don't get me started on all the different colorations in Asian arowana. I would like to have an adult super red one day.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    One of the aquarium stores that I go to has a large (maybe 2 1/2 foot long) Arowana and i have to say they are creepy looking. my dream tank would be 3 or 4 Pacus. Great fish, I was able to hand feed mine. RIP
