As you probably already know the arowana will get massive too, and big fish need swimming space.
I think you have it mixed up. Peacock bass are not aggressive to any fish other than the pbass lower in the pecking order. They are aggressive feeders but dont attack other fish. Dovii (wolf cichlid) and umbies are extremely aggressive towards anything in their territory and a 240 gallon would be considered one fish's territory so you would have a single fish tank.

Yeah, go with gumps suggestion. I've never personally had a Peacock Bass before. I thought they were just as aggressive as a dovii or umbee, only bigger. They are awesome fish from what I see. Good luck.
