Book Description
The Asian Arowanas (Scleropages sp.) belong to the most fascinating fish of the World. Due to their brilliant colors, their large scales, their swimming pattern and their large fins, they remind us of the ancient and mythological Dragons! Keeping these Dragon fishes at home brings luck and fits perfectly to the philosophy of Feng Shui. However, some wild populations of Dragon fishes are threatened by extinction and all are therefore listed on Appendix 1 of CITES. Thus only captive bred specimens are open for the trade. This book reflects the actual status quo of the captive bred Asian Arowana population, with well over 500 fascinating and brilliant color photographs. Everything you need to know, wanted to know or should now about those fascinating creatures is in this book! Separated in chapters about Arowana breeding farms, reports (with photos) of true international Arowana fans, all the different color patterns in photos, breeding reports, feeding, other fish that can be kept with the Dragon, diseases and cures, water parameters, how to obtain a CITES permit, really everything you need to know about the Dragon fish! The ultimate Arowana reference book!!
