My LFS has a tank that is probably a 55 gallon with 3 full grown Silver Arowana's swimming around in it. . . I said something to the clerk about it while I was about to walk out as its extremely cruel to have them in a tank that size. They are obviously extremely squished in there. Theres no way I would do business with a place doing that.
However, she pointed out to me that they were actually the owners pets, and the tank was only a very temporary holding location. She then pointed to the MONSTER tank in the front of the store and said they were setting that up to house them, and a few other huge fish they had. She didn't say the size of the tank, but I woul dimagine its probably close to 1000-1200 gallons. It is about 6 foot x 6 foot square, and about 4 feet high. She said that empty, the tank weighs around 1000 pounds. . .
So it sucks that they are there temporarily, they have one hell of a home coming for them soon!
