My boyfriends birthday is this week, and this is what he wanted for his birthday present:







Our new Silver Arowana is currently set up in a 30 gallon tank, and will be moved to our 125 gallon once he grows a little bit more - he's only 6" long so far. My Oscars were eying him as we tried to put him the 125g right away, but decided that it would be safer to start him off in a smaller tank.

Does anyone have one of these at home?

We are very excited about him, he's eaten crickets today and some hydei FF yesterday. He turned his nose up at the floating pellets and frozen blood worms though.

Oh, does anyone have any suggestions for a name for this little guy? All my BF has so far is "Mr. Arowana"....and I'm afraid that it might stick

Lucifer
lol, we have a fish named Lucifer already, I have a Blood Parrot Fish, her name is Lucifer, but we call her Luci for short.


This is a pic of her when she was smaller, she is quite big now

Both of those fish are awesome. I know a guy who owns a fish like this. Your Boyfriend will be happy with this present for many years to come.

Thanks Jaws! My BF has been wanting an Arowana for the past 2 years now, and we were holding off until he was almost finished school (another 1-1/2 years left to go). Once he's done school we're planning on getting a "monster" sized fish tank. I want something around 350 gallons, which I think this little guy will be more happy in.

lol no. It's a Silver Arowana Osteoglossum bicirrhosum. He'll be around 36" long or so when he's full grown.

I guess that would depend on how big your viv is, check out this awesome fish tank build:

(a little too big for my taste, but impressive none the less)
