Unread postby SCORPIO » Sun Jul 20, 2014 11:53 am

My wife want to keep an Arowana since a long but due to space constraint, I was unable to keep. Finally we decided to keep small speciman for several month. After proper growth, we will sell it and brought another small fish. Here a is 4-5 inch Arowana in a planted tank.

Tank size 36X18X18 inch.

Thanks for understanding me. Space is a big problem in Indian cities.

Could not manage more space. Tank is fully covered.

Rajiv Ji, the idea of selling the fish once it outgrows the tank doesn't sounds good in the first place. You might not get any taker at all.

I had the same arowana 8 years back. Bought its very small - probably the same size as yours now - for INR 450. Cared for it for 2 years & then sold it to a guy for INR 5,000.
I didn't measure the fish at that time but its was pretty long and a beauty. The superstition associated with these fishes make them sellable at any size.

Keshava
