Check out this guy!!Thought I'd share with you Arowana junkies. This guy is in a display tank at my LFS. He is huge. Easily 2 feet. Apparently he has been known to bite when people put their hands in to do tank maint, and draw blood. He's an Asian Fancy, apparently.

Looks like an asian red, or maybe super red? Crispy will be on his way to educate us shortlyMy therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

definitely a red. there are many 'gimicky' names like super red, diablo red, double red, but they are all "red asian aros" (scleropages formosus). awesome fish indeed! you would think an endangered species worth a few thousand dollars would have a bit more tank space? or is it just the pic?
...I would seriously contemplate breaking into the store and stealing the aro if that was my shop.

Beautiful fish! I dream of one day owning a Red!
Hobbs...With Aros, it's not always a good idea to have the tank full to the top. For several reasons.-Jordan
