In the United States, it is illegal to own or import any species of the Asian arowana. The Asian arowana was originally Scleropages formosus, but has since been split into several different species -- all protected. The species is listed as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature's Red List.

dude i read that you can keep him in a dark bucket or something for a day or atleast 8 hours and when you put him in a new tank or a rearranged same tank it will disorient him and hell be docile until he figures out new territories.

Hanim
Hanim - 3 years ago
Major fish noob here but is the arowana aggressive because he is the biggest in the tank or because it's in the nature of the fish? I saw a vlog by someone who 'tamed' an aggressive yellow tang by placing a big picture of another yellow tang on the aquarium. Would that work with an arowana? Again, I know nothing about fish I'm just curious, don't roast me hahahah

We kept our Asian Arowana with 3 Oscars (2 male 1 female) and an electric catfish I can't for the life of me remember what he was other than that though he was given to us when the store we regulated just couldn't keep him because people kept putting their hands in his tank and grabbing him, he would then shock them and send them flying across the hall. I think he was the only reason my Oscars and Arowana got along though in part because they were the same size and couldn't get their mouth around each other but my electric catfish wouldn't tolerate any fighting as soon as they started chasing each other or biting he would fly up from his cave and shock the hell out of them leave them twitching at first I was worried about them but then I realized he only did it if they were fighting so I just let him take care of it lol and yes they were always okay no lasting damage just a little stunned. I miss that little blue eyed sausage he was really cool.

After a successful trip to the horse races my spouse finally succumbed to my constant requests for the Arrowana!12 yrs later the fish passed on and I had her freeze dried. Now almost 20 yrs later I still have her

Pisces
Pisces - 3 years ago
Sad Onion it depends on the parasite. My 12 gallon tank suffers from white spot (a fungal disease) so I use nox-ich which I find to be the best treatment. I also have tetras so I have to use less than what is prescribed. Also this medicine would kill invertebrates. My betta tank sometimes suffers from fin rot which is a bacteria disease. I use this treatment especially made for bettas (I don't remember the brand name)

Joey. When you used to keep silver arowanas, how were their behavior like? Do they ever come up to you and stay there with you with close interactions or did they always swim around? I want to get a black aro and wanted to know if it'll slow down to interact with me when I'm around. Do they ever slow their pace down enough to be close with you or do they have to keep on swimming? If not, I think I'll opt out for a jardini. I want an aro that knows me and will stay still sometimes.

My tank is 72in X 24in X 28in and the Arowana is about 15-17in long. The new Red Jardini one I'm wanting to get is 3-5 inches long from the online supplier.My question is, how do I properly introduce the new Jardin to my tank without my Arowana trying to eat the new one? I don't want the new Jardini to become a 450$ meal lol.

I also want tank mates for the silver arowana i have, in 2 1/2 months he's grown 2 full inches. His tank mate since babies ghost knife hasnt grown much, but, time will tell, the knife was 8 inches when i got them both. Also lovin the new 375, and am thinking maybe its time for a basement apartment so i can get atleast a 300 myself. The most recent videos are above and beyond past videos, your really getting into it deeply and its showing!!!!!!!

I am becoming less and less interested in your content. I am also not a fan of people getting wild caught fish. These poor fish were in their native habitat hanging out and doing what fish do. You paid someone (probably some poor person) an enormous amount of money to essentially kidnap them from their paradise and put them in a watery grave you call an aquarium, to see IF they MIGHT get along with the PROVEN killer fish you already have. There are plenty of fish that have been bred in captivity that you could have bought. Also your gigantic tank is not something I think I would ever have or want. I am not understanding your bizarre reasoning for the content you are putting out for the last year or so. Only one or two video's have been geared toward me, the relatively small (4 tanks ranging from 10 to 95 gallons) novice fish keeper who is looking to save some money and do some EASY INEXPENSIVE DIY projects to my fish tanks. I am becoming extremely disappointed in your style and content.

Hey Joey,

First of all, let me begin with a compliment that I'm sure you would have received countless times before - your videos are so much informative and fun to watch! And the name of your channel is so well suited.
Coming to this video, it actually ended a prolonged question I have been thinking about - which fish would be the best tank mate for my Arowana? On a dare, I put in 2 pairs of a fish species about 6 months back and they all seem to be doing great in the tank. And when I started watching this video of yours, I swear I had my fingers crossed, hoping I did not make the wrong decision. And when you revealed the fish that you opted for, voila! I I was so relieved! I too have put in Silver dollars in with my Arowana (He is a Silver Arwoana and I named him Sobek, after the Ancient Egyptian God of the Nile). Another thing that I considered apart from the list you mentioned is how shiny these fish are. I thought that would distract the Arowana and keep him from singling one of the fish out.

Now, at the risk of appearing somewhat stupid, here's another question that I need your help with - would it be advisable to add a Black Ghost Knife Fish to the tank?
My tank is 4 feet wide and has a depth of 3 feet (I plan to transfer y fish to a bigger one as they grow) and I have used sand as a substrate and placed large rocks as hardscape. There are cave-like formations where the Black Ghost may take cover. Sobek is almost a feet long now and the Silver Dollars are 3-4 inches each.

Could you please help me out with this?

P.S.: Please excuse the lengthy comment; but as a fellow hobbyist I hope you understand the excitement. :-)

Thanks,
Shankh

New fish is always a great feeling. I've been kinda down lately because the last two new fish, both of which I loved, passed away overnight within a couple of days (one was velvet, the other was an unseasonably cold night that I wasn't prepped for.) Soon I'll have another, though, because my fiancee is going to replace my birthday fish. I'm excited for that. Hopefully it will be similar to the temperament of the other.

I called it! I was thinking silver dollar the whole time you were listing your requirements!! I love these guys I have 6 common ones with my Texas cichlid and they make the best tankmates. Always fast and peaceful, but always get their food too.

I can't till I have a tank big enough for the big wild caught varieties. Have you seen the wide bar silver dollars? another beautiful species.

Gratz on your new fish. I think those new fish look awesome. The only thing I would suggest is to give them time to bulk up a little since they look a little slim. These new fish are going to color up and they already look amazing. Good choice man. I suppose you can always use a Pacu. I would suggest a trigrinum catfish...they are really expensive and awesome. Having said all this with an Asian Arowana it is always a gamble so good luck bud. I enjoy your videos, thank you for sharing and keep making them.

If he's as aggressive as you make it seem, I don't see this working nor being your best bet. You'd be better off with bottomed dwellers such as bichirs, or large armored catfish, like an irwini. Something that won't be in his face, and is actually tough enough to take what he dishes out. I wouldn't say you should call it quits after the silver dollars because they aren't a good idea to begin with in my opinion, if he's as aggressive as you say.

1.how much was your arowana.
2.how big is your arowana.
3.how big will your arowana get.
Also for a bottom feed get a large pelco it fits all of the standards except shoaling an, but they have spines in their face and fins but they are armoured, and they eats EVERYTHING I have 1 and it rekt one of my plants to a stick but the best thing of pelcos is their colour but in a video you said you were colour blind.
hope you reply but i just want this info so i could save for a aisian arowana
p.s. somebody said they get to 4ft and you need a 16ft long tank so is this true.

Myleus rubripinnis are my favourite fish!
About one and a half year ago I´ve got 4 "Metynnis" but of one them was actually a M.rubripinnis.
So I did my best and kept upgrading the tank to 120gal but he (yea it´s a male) outgrew this tank pretty fast!
Right now my little nutcracker (´cause I used to feed him peanuts, Myleus love nuts!) is living in a 250gal tank with 7 more M.rubripinnis and about 10 Metynnis maculatus.

Of course I do miss this fish.
I´ve got him with 4cm in length and he grew to about 22cm.
Have fun with these beautiful fish!
Good luck.

my Oscar is very different from your oscars,her name is pepper and she's one of those white oscars,somehow she doesn't like to eat the smaller fish I put in her fish tank (probably because she's still a juvenile) I put two mollies and they have never been eaten by pepper,but I think when she's full grown then she'll probably start eating the smaller fish and acting more aggressive

Haha you sound like you have an Oscar with a very similar personality to one I had for many years. If you make the mistake of buying fish that don't grow at the same rate (even if they are the same size as the Oscar when you buy them), the Oscar will eventually outgrow and kill them if you happen to own one with attitude problem. I had mine for 7 years and 5 of those were in solitary confinement. He killed probably a good 10-15 other fish I attempted to tank with him, including my 11-inch pleco' somehow,, which was actually fairly upsetting. The Oscar died of old age year and cost me a lot of money, but he is still my favourite fish I have ever kept,

I never said what i used, but that is not for internal parasites. I will make a video on how to do it in the future.

I am usually lurking in the background, but always try to tune in when you are live. I am extremely pleased with the new tank mates and the pending Tropheus for the in-wall (any new fish in the in-wall will do, but Tropheus are so fun) will give you that new fish feeling for a very long time... I am so stoked to see your future shows.... great work Joey!

Ahhh the wait is finally over, and you did NOT disappoint. Awesome choice! I just got a 90 gollan tank, you think these would work well in that tank, and if they're schooling, how many you think would be good for a 90. or if they're going to get too big for it eventually?
