these fish are very fun to care for. i would recommend these for anyone from a newbie to expert breeders. very hardy, and get along very well with all my other fish. im still trying to figure how to breed them. they are very good jumpers, i found out the hard way... i must say tho, if u have anything less then a 55 Gallon tank (if u have a 55, dont get more than 2) dont get one of these because they can grow very very large, i ve seen some that are 15 inches long.

I am from the Philippines and my arowana was given to me by my son on my birthday last Oct. 2000. I love to see him swim. I usually fed him fish and heart chicken. Last March 6, it jumps from his aquarium a 72 gal. one, it felt twice while being returned to his aquarium. After three days, it died. The whole family were so lonely that we missed our arowana. we decided to bring it to taxidermist so we can see him always.My son who is in Korea wants to see him when he go home. We will surely missed our pet arowana. . I want to buy a new one, but it was said it is better when given not bought. . To all arowana lovers love your arowana because you will missed it . . .Lydia from the Philippines

I have had a Pangasius cat fish for 2 months now. it was very stressed when in the aquatic shop and I was told not to expect it to live, but as soon as I got it home it immediately up and has gone from strength to strength ever since. It is at present in a community tank with mainly gouramies, 2 angels, rosie barbs, 2 reed fish, a sail fin pleco, and some tetra. I will be moving it to another tank with a couple of the largest of the other fish from my community tank soon, to give it more room to swim and grow. I would recommend a Pangasius to anyone who likes exotic and friendly fish, they are great. I am really glad I rescued it.

I bought a Black Moor about 3 months ago and hes about 2 inches long. He has a strange habbit by floating to the top of the tank and gurgling water, its a bit strange. For some odd reason he likes to clean my rocks for me too. He will suck up one rock at a time, swish it around a bit and spit it out. its funny to watch him do this. Because he does this every five seconds, I named him Rocky.

I got a black moor 3 days ago. I called him Squirt, he is very cute and likes swiming around. And I also got Squirt with two other goldfish. But most of all he is the best.

I have 1 jack dempsy, 2 black convicts, 2 jewel cichlids, 1 nicarguense, 1 green terror, 1 geophagus altifrons, and 3 african cichlids in a large tank. My jack is about 7" now, he is exceptionally colorful and is actually one of the least aggressive fish in my tank. He hates when other fish are being aggressive towards each other near him and he will usually chase the aggressor away! He is definitely the boss of the tank.

I bought 5 neon tetras and 2 pictus cats, 3 days later I had 1 neon tetra and 2 pictus cats, lol. Dont put neon tetras in a tank with pictus cats or larger fish. Also I would suggest an undergravel filter with Neons I had neons in two seperate aquariums and 2 different times some of my neons got caught in the filter intake.Of course after I turned off the filter the Neon sank to the bottom and the Pictus cats gobbled him up.
