i have been a keeper of many silver arowana and have noticed that by tapping the water before feeding you can train all arowanas to to be hand fed. it might not sound great but its a good experience and is worth trying. chris

I purchased an african butterfly fish and was told it was a good community fish. My tank was not full of small fish it did contain several bottom dwellers and very few that stayed out in the open. I had an elephant nose, a babywhale which are both mormyrids. I had a huge snail, and a dragon loach, dojo loach and kuali loach. I also had another fish and am not sure of the type. In a matter of a week the butter fly fish killed off all but the kuali loach and the baby whale. Needless to say the butterfly fish is now in her own tank but I am out alot of fish that I took time and money to pick out. I am thoroughly disappointed. I think the butterfly fish is a beautiful fish and loved watching it float and swim...now it does it alone. Just a word of wisdom. DO not think the fish is not aggressive. It is very aggressive. You should see what it did to these other fish. It looks as though they were shreded. Thanks for listening to the comments I have made.

i have a red tail golden arowana (RTG). when the RTG was acquired april 2005 it was only 12 cm, now it is 43 cm. fed it with live crickets daily, weekly it will be fed live centipede or frogs and a constant supply of small fishes usually baby carp. Water change of 30% to 50% is done every 2 weeks (the aquarium can hold 650 lts).when you see it swimming gracefully, i tell you, its worth it. just beautiful.

Hi I have a 19" Silver Arowana in my 105 gal tank. I think he is the coolest thing ever. he made mates with my 8" Green Terror female and the two of them play all day long. I feed him fresh fhake daily (I DON'T BELIEVE IN LIVE FOOD, IT IS A SIN! POOR FISHIES) and twice a week he gets ox heart, he's growing like a bomb. My best fish by far.

We just got our butterfly fish today, and after reading other comments on other sites, found that you can feed them moths. Well, we just happen to have grain moths in our house that we can't get rid of...so we've been catching them today and putting them in the tank. It's been fun for us watching the butterfly pounce on the moth, lol. So far, it doesn't seem to be bothering our other fish. We have many "aggressive" fish that don't bother our other fish. We've actually never had any problems. We have an African Knife, also...and that is a great fish to watch, too.
