  1. Found a cool arowana in my local pet shop today so I bought it home. It put up a good fight but it is about an hour in and it is definitely loosing the battle. It did last about 10 times longer than any previous adversaries tho. Sorry the fish isn't real but I thought it was pretty cool.
  2. hi , I am on holiday in uk, saw an ad in local paper where a l.f.s. is selling red arowana for 8thousand pounds each (app $16000.00 dollars) I do not know what these fish are (I keep community &bristlies) but this seems rather expensive to me. Can anyone shed any light on these fish and their value in aus. maybe they are not available there? any info would be good.
  3. Arowana Fishes for sale Something smells fishy here, But anyone after a cheap Arow here you go
  4. so we all know its a bad bad thing when a wholesaler gets their grips on an exotic species usually in the next year or two to follow the market is flooded and demand is gone being able to pick up peacock bass at $8 each is ridiculous, so silver arows? just take a gander over at bayfish... the good news is it probably wont be long until we can all afford a silver or two in our tanks thoughts?
  5. .Hi All, I own a 60cm silver arowana which has recently been a bit sick. After treating it from a skin bacteria on its body it recovered back to normal about 2 weeks ago. Recently, in the past week I now have a new issue of skin around its lips getting eaten away and also cloudy eyes with unusual red bruising. I am not sure what it is, but have been advised its most likely bacteria. For now I have just added a dose of antibiotics tablets to the water to stop it from losing more skin as this should hopefully kill the bacteria. Does any member have any idea what is causing the infection? Tank - 8ft PH - 7 Temperature 30 degrees Nitrate, Nitrite and Ammonia normal or low.
  6. Is it just me or is their more and more silver arowanas becoming available? Does this mean we could see a drop in price like we did with peacock bass? Arowanas are easily bred in captivity so i don't see why not? Bring on cheap silvers

  13. Hey exotic-fish fanatics Just found this article and thought you guys would be interested. A new species of arowana has been 'recorded' for the first time, collected somewhere in Thailand. It has some awesome patterning to it, similar to striation seen on discus fish.

  14. NO Im not looking to export...this is just GENERAL AQUARIUM DISCUSSION I remember reading once how some of the arowana "clique" overseas also collected saratoga...think they sometimes called it a pearl arowana....think its in reference to the jardini and its pearl coloured spots on the scales....just wondering how saratoga are viewed overseas....and what people think about them as a member of the arowana brigade....I think saratoga rock personally and I know one day..I WILL have a saratoga playland...... oh and to spark some more convo.....can/has a saratoga been bred with another arowana(say silver for example) before??? Is it genetically possible?...
  15. hey guys i got 2 silver arowanas in a 8x2x3 and i needed some holes drilled in the glass so i drained the tank so there was enough for them to swim and drilled the holes some of the milky water went in the tank so i sucked all i could out of it and filled it back up the temp is a bit low but there swiming around still at the top but there breathing heavey with there mouth open so i was just wondering do you reckon its from the temp drop or the crap that went in the water , thanks guyz Matt

  20. Just bought a tank which had to be setup in 1 day for the fish to be moved from one place to the other Cycled filters pH was higher than what is usually kept for the fish - pH 8 no ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate added bunnings play sand and it's clearing up if theres any other information needed just ask the fish has been eating the previous owner fed chicken and beef but it has had some NLS food Any suggestions for treatment? Was thinking water changes for sure, but tap water? not sure if I should trust rainwater Salt? commerical medication?
  21. What type of Arowana is this? By the way, its about 70cm long Green tinge on its mouth and gill plate Dark on the top of him
