Is this true? if so, i plan on buying it. Some foreign floating isolation tank for 26.99. It has a arowana on its cover and is about 1 -5 gallons.
since it is obvious that you do not want to listen to anyone here is the truth about what will happen to your fish.
they will start to get mean, real mean, ripping each others fins off, lip locking, chasing the hell out of one another and eventually killing each other.
please make up your mind on one of your fish and take the rest back. THIS IS YOUR ONLY OPTION. (notice the capital letters) you are throwing your money, time and fish away by doing what you are trying to pull off right now.
i do not think you are ready to keep an arowana. see if you can return him for the price you purchased him for.
stop being so ignorant and listen to the same advice everyone has given you.
