The arowana is a magnificent fish and one of the best I've ever kept.

However, they are NOT suited to a community tank as they'll eat all your other fish, and they require a large tank of at least 2 metres in length. They grow very large in comparison to most freshwater fish you'll find in your local petstore. So make sure you do plenty of research on this fish before buying one.

Good filtration is also essential as they will thrive on a meaty diet.
