    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    So...just wondering if any of you guys realize how Arrowana are caught in the wild, especially the juvenile form.

    I'm willing to bet most folks would not support the capture of juvenile arrowana if they researched this. I stopped carrying them in my shop when I found out.

    The juvies with the attached yolk sac usually die.

    juvies are much larger and do not have eggsacks. the arowana fry have the eggsack. arowana are still juvies after a couple years!

    to get baby aros from the wild they will catch a holding male and strip the fry from his mouth. most arowana are farm bred, and the south american aros have good numbers in the wild.

    I do not recommend buying such a small arowana. they are very fragile when small and need pristine conditions and a good appetite to survive.

    Yes, I am well aware of how wild fry are captured. Our Aro did have a yolk sack when we purchased her. As stated though...Most are aquacultured/farm raised these days.
