The temperature of the water in the aquarium should always be maintained.The sensitive gills can be affected when it is either too hot or too cold suddenly.

Feeding the Arowana is very straight forward.They are filter feeders by nature,but they have all the tools to be absolute killing machines.the Arowana eats anything that floats including pellets,bugs,freeze dried worms and algae discs .The Arowana also loves feeder fish ,however he bores quickly of chasing them if they are really small.

The Arowana is not aggressive towards his tank mates,only his diiner.He chomps at any type of food with tenacity.

As Arowana is most expensive fish in the world its price in India is around  Rs 60,000.
