The butterfly fish is a relative of the arrowana, but it's doesn't really look anything like one. IMO, golden wonder killis are like mini arrowanas. But, they are way too big for a 5 as well. There are other, smaller species that could be kept in a 5 though, but they are not commonly available.
I do not consider those "mini" arrowanas to be mini any more than a fancy goldfish is a mini. Yes it's smaller, but only because it's deformed. Also, those "mini" arrowanas cost thousands of dollars, AND there is a waiting list for them, since there aren't many fish that have the deformity. They are not bred for it like other species.
