No, it isn't. There are various species of arowanas, most of which are rarely available due to being registered under CITES as endangered species.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

arowana is endangered species that list in appendix 1 CITES means very rare and protected by all countries.

Some countries banned the arowana import.

Trading must have arowana export licence that is CITES Registration.

the first pic is the best arowana super red that i ever seen.

the second one is harvesting time from male arowana.

In the language of arowana enthusiasts, harvesting is simply removal of fry from their male parents. Male aros serve to protect their fry which hide in their mouths. By removing the fry, the hobbyists get to raise the fry on their own.

blue is right. the males hold the eggs and when they hatch they stay around the male untill they get a little bigger and they use the male for shelter. so harvesing them is simply removing the fry from the males mouth.
