Do you mean in a damaged type way ? or has it occured over a period of time ? the Thing with Arro's is you have to watch there housed in, it there is anything in the housing that can be jumped at they naturally will leading to damage. :D

A picture will help to see what exactly you mean by it splitted into two.

Here's an arowana with its "whiskers" in perfect condition. There certainly are two or you're referring to one "whisker" as splitting into two?

Hes talking about if one of the two Y's out. This is usually caused by it being bitten off or damaged when smaller now its growing back odd. Y's are pretty rare but damaged barbels are quite common with mixing arowanas with other fish. Short of cutting it off below the split there really isn't any other way of fixing it and since its an auzzy arow i wouldn't even try surgery.
