They are excellent JUMPERS! You will need a lid on your aquarium. We recommend a lid on any aquarium no matter what type of fish but definitely with these guys.
These are solitary fish, they are known for aggression and dominance.
Some Compatible tank mates are pacu, green terror, gar, jaguar cichlid, Oscars and a few others as long as they don’t fit in the Arowanas mouth.
These fish normally out grow their tank within 8-12 months.
WE RECOMMEND ONLY PURCHASING AN AROWANA IF YOU HAVE AT LEAST A 150 GALLON TANK, while tanks from 400 - 600 are recommended.
