18 - 23 inches depending on what arowana it is. They do not reach breeding age until about 4 years old.

They also need a massive tank at least over 200 gallons (750+ Litres)

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

The long thing is a sensor that the fish uses to detect the position of prey on the surface of the water.

They can jump a long way out of the water and are easily scared in the home aquarium.

Do you have an arowana?

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.
