I'm sorry but I don't know what to consider avarage price of an Australian arowana in australia as i can only assume they should be cheaper in Australia than the rest of the world.

Rollie. I don't know about Canada but you can by South American Arowanas for 3$ and get them deliver to the states. The transportation cost is 45$ so you need to buy a few to make it worth it but considering you have a fish store....

that cheap but, the shipping would be to hight, plus when they come to the canada border it $100.00 to $300.00 just for some man to open and look at then. one of my peoples look into that a few years back and found it to hight. to ship my fish in cost $200.00 to come by plane 1000 miles, and that 3 small boxes. more boxes ,more shipping, plus last summer the canada goverment added a 15% duty on most fish coming into canada.

Suprised to hear that the shipping cost are so high when they are only around 70$ to cities like Buffalo, Seattle and spokane right att the Canadian Border. Oh well just thought I should tell you.

I just read in Bargain Trader last night a guy in FL has one, 12 inches, that he wants $125 for. Living in FL would make it worthwhile but who knows if he would ship and ship properly.

i have three arrowanas , one is 15in male i paid 50 bucks for , the other is a 15in female but thicker i paid 75 , and one is 11 inches female i paid 50 for ..the dude sold them to me at a loss considerign the fact that had he went to a petshop they would offer him that same price so the owner thought why not sell them at that price to someone who would give them the same type of care as he did...the petshop people would have threw in some feeder goldfishes and sold them for hundreds....i feed mines chicken pieces , beef hearts , shrimp , Silversides and Spearings , they eat something different each and everyday , and you should see the beautiful hints of Green and reds on their bodies....thats the difference...the care i put into them....i guess i did get lucky...i would HIGHLY suggest you obtain an arrowana from another fellow fish hobbiest as apposed to a petshop in my humble opinion those are the best types of fishes to keep since you know the care that went into them , petshops look for profits and cut costs many times.....and beaare of the ones that eat live foods only , that is a HUGE mistake........do you believe because my arrowanas were fed primarly nonlive foods they actually live with smaller fishes that they do not bother at all? Key thing also is to keep them well fed! GOOD LUCK with your serch of the arrowanas..they are awsome fishes and are thought to bring you good luck as well , they are very pleasing to watch as well

My local pet store carries baby silver arowanas regularly and prices them at $18. The juvenile ones are much more expensive...

In India most of the asian arowanas are smuggled in from singapore,directly from the farm so all the asian arowanas you buy here will have that particular farm's chip implanted and a certificate with the code in it, jardini is around Rs.1300 to 1500 ($30) for 6 inches,silver Rs 800 ($20) for the same price, red tail Rs 10000 ($250) and chilli red and golden around Rs 25000 ($625) and the cheapest asian arowana the green Rs 3000 - 4500 ($75 - 112).The pet store I go to has only arowanas and flowerhorns, all smuggled in from singapore once a month.It all depends on how well you know the pet store owner.
