I have been reading about them and had heard stories about the bigger ones in the wild eating baby monkeys that had fallen from trees anyway they are really beutiful fish and they are truly great as a pet. Mine is 20" and I love her and my royal pleco.

I took Clide, my silver arowana, to the vet (university veterinary hospital) because he was not eating and had a bulging right eye. Think twice before you do this because he thrashed so hard in the tupperware that he lost the feelers on his lower lip and several scales, as well as had a bashed up nose, and was mad at me for a week and would not let me feed or pet him for a week even though he would eat when my daughter fed him. Arowanas are very smart fish and definitely recognize different people and remember things. He is ok now though.

I had a butterfly in my aquarium for almost a year, but about six months ago I bought an alligator gar. Within that six months he grew to almost 15 inches (and still getting bigger!). And one day, my butterfly mysteriously disappeared...

I have been getting ready to set up my old 33 gallon tank and was peeking on the internet for new breeds of aquarium fishes when I found this interesting site! In response to the lady who lost her butterfly to their bad flight habits, I have a warning. This goes out to all butterfly owners. There may be a day when you come home from work to find your favorite fish laying on the floor behind the couch. When you pick up the dried little body, **DONT TOSS IT IN THE TOILET RIGHT AWAY** I had no idea how long my butterfly had been out of the water but I was not giving up that easy. She was dried and crusty, as dead as dead ever looked. I put her in the tank juuuuuuust to be positive, and you had better believe it, she was swimming within an hour!! No difference in her behavior, eating habits, abilities, nothing! She lived for quite some time after that as well. I also kept that two inch gap at the back of the lid covered from then on!! Happy butterfly watching people!

I have about 2 years having Arowanas and they are the most incredible fish there are. you can teach them to eat directly from your hand, and they even ask for food when hungry. my very first one once jumped a little bit more than 3 feet out of his tank, so remember always get a cover for your tank. by the way, the practice of feeding them from your hand could be dangerous with grown arowanas, so if you did not teach them since babies you better not do it.

I have had a few and they are really interesting fish. I saw them on the discovery channel and discovered that they can eat birds and insects and grow over 5 feet in the wild. I really want to try and breed them but they are kinda expensive.

Well.. I have just started keeping an Arowana about 3 months ago. He is about 3-4in and is very cute. He stays in a tank with a 3-4in clown knife a good sized Eel, and surprisingly a male betta. They are all great together. Ive had him since he had his yolk sac, so hes my little baby. He eats Pellets 4 carniverious fish, and loves them. He also eats the remains of worms from my Eel
He has not tried an escape yet but i am sure hes thinking about it when i take off the lid. Thanx 4 all ur help....
