That fish has an evil look on it. She really has grown though.

Wow, amazing fish! What does she eat, and is that a bloodworm she's eating in the baby pic?

Great fish! Now I want an aro, but I just don't have the space.

Absolutely wonderful... a very very Fab arowana !

Thanks for the comments all!

She pretty much eats anything that fits in her mouth...And that is mostly anything. We feed her alot of higher end pellet foods, raw shrimp, and fish fillets.

What you are seeing in her baby pic is her barbels...Not a Blood Worm.

I need to ask you... how do you feed the shrimp or frozen shrimp ? they immediately sink into the tank... i have been trying to feed my Arowana's but they dont eat as shrimps sink.

have to put quiet a few and which ever is caught on top, they eat, else all fall down.

appreciate your tips please.

Nice arowana man lol how big is your fish tank?

12-10-2012, 05:14 PM
Thanks. It's just a 180 right now. We're in the process of buying a house, so we hope to get a 375 or larger after our next/last move.

Going to be necessary by the looks of this one. Nice, healthy looking fish.

Amazing. How active is she?

I'd love to see a full tank shot if you have one.

Thanks. She never stops moving. She spends most of the time swimming beneath the surface of the water looking for food. I don't have a up-to-date full tank shots. I can try to get some, but we've been very busy lately.
