Nice! It looks like you have a pretty big tank there. Can you put up some whole tank pictures sometime along with information? Maybe some pics of your plants. I like the background that looks like cylindrical rocks or something...image 4.

I'd like to have a arowana but I'd need about a 150 gallon tank. I wouldn't want a 150 gallon planted tank...no way...it'd be way too cool. *drools* Very Happy

He is a golden pearl Arowana. Regarding the cost. I'm not sure. He costs around Rupees 6500 in our currency. I have transfeered him to a new tank. The pics post here include both the new and the old tank. I'll try to get a full tank shot soon.

I think may be a couple of centimetres longer. He was affected by anchor worms for sometime. Let me tell you one thing he has become extremely aggressive now.

I wanted to ask this: Why does he flair up when he sees anything that is yellow in colour? Has anybody seen this behaviour before?

Hmm. What do you mean extremely aggressive? What else do you have in the tank?

Aggressive in the sense he just gets flaired up when I open the roof for feeding him or when he sees something yellow in colour outside.

I have planned to move him to a 4 feet long tank soon(to be kept in my farmhouse). I had a tough time building that tank. Had to fill up leaks now and then to ensure it is perfect. Right now I'm cycling it.

The tank parameters are:

Length : 4 feet
Breadth: 3 feet(approx)
Height : 5 feet

I felt that increasin the depth would help. I have gone for an under gravel filter. After the backlash I received for my other posting I have decided not to go for any more photograph posting hereafter. I think my Arowana would be happy in the new bigger tank.

I would think having a longer tank with dimensions like 8x2x2 would be better for the arowana instead of a deeper tank...how do you view your aro? I think creating a deeper tank might contribute to drop eye as well.
