well.. i have been keeping mine for like about 5 years and it is about three feet now.. i bought it on my birthday, but anyway this fish is not so hard to care for as long as you got space for this fish. And also this fish grows really fast. My fish got into one and half feet in less than one year when i first bought it. in addition you can also train this fish to eat pellets because mine do. But it is easier to train your fish when it is still a baby fish, once the fish get big, it is really hard to change their diet.
well, this is what i feed my fish: pellets, feederfishes, insects (crickets), shrimps, pawns, beef heart, chicken meat...etc well my fish, my "dragon" just eats about anything that is meaty.
O yea, really important at nite, remember to cover your fish tank really tight and have something heavy to put on top of the cover; because this fish can jump really high and it is a very powerful jumper.
okay guys, have fun keeping with your "dragon" fish because they are really interesting and fun to keep and watch.

I put my arowana with about 20 small feeder fish and it can gulp one whenever he feels a bit peckish. Oscars and other large fish will make good tank-mates with it.

The African Butterfly was my favorite of all fish. Easy to care for, wonderful to watch. When I purchased this beauty the fish store gave little information in caring for it. I had him for a month when I found him on the floor about 3 feet from the tank one morning. Doing research (after the fact)I found they will always jump out of the tank. You must keep the back of the tank covered they will leap through any opening. They glide up to 6 feet in the air in streams. I wish I knew this before hand, I would still have my beautiful butterfly.
