Great fish that stays on top and minds its own business. I had 2 but passed away, but not hard to keep at all.

    Yeah, I got a question. I had a needle fish before but it died. So I was going to asked you this question because your an expert with this type of fish. I need to know how my needle fish died, I had everything, water temperature, food, and that's about it. I don't know if it needs something else.

I have had my stonefish for about a year and have kept him in freshwater the whole time. At first he was a rather picky eater but now I'm feeding him small comets. He gets about a dozen a month and it seems to keep him happy. He is a very vocal fish and when I am running a vaccum or some such thing he has often voiced his disapproval. He is a fascinating fish to watch and moves devilishly fast compared to what I was expecting.
good luck

Mine is a silver arow, 8inches. She was 5" when I got her 2 mos ago. Her name is 'tisay'. She's in a 50gallon tank which I think is my mistake of acquiring for her since I only knew a little about that arowana's need quite a bit of space as they grow bigger. And keeping them in a small tank is not appropriate for this fish. I have quite a stack of worms in a container and the reason that I do this is so I could select from them those that have shredded their skin. So I could give my arowana the softest & skinless worms there are and no worm scales stay in her stomach, only fresh newly skinned soft meal worms. Since then, we spend a lot of time with the kids watching the arowana in her tank and it's really fun, fun. Fun wathcing her devour her meal is quite a show! Actually, I can't imagine my house not having one.

Hi, my boyfriend bought me an arowana for my birthday. He's still a baby and very cute. I am feeding him plankton at the moment and he loves it. I will be switching him to Hirakari Pellets when he gets bigger. I have had one before and he loved being mixed with other community fish. He is in our 200 Gal tank now and he lives with 6 green swordtails, a very large pleco two rainbowfish, a freshwater flounder and one sailfin molly. Everyone gets along great. I have had one arowana before but due to a power outtage while I was at work one winter, he died due to the water getting too cold. But I have learned that these fish mix well with community fish if NOT fed live food and kept on pellets and other non live foods. I never had any problems even when he got bigger. Wish me luck this time, I hope to see him get very big and happy!

I have a butterfly fish along with a mudskipper and 2 minnows and they get along just fine. The mudskipper sits on the rock we have and hides under while the minnows stay in the middle and the butterfly fish stays on the top. I would recommend this fish to anyone who has a freshwater tank.

Aro's are jumpers, a good strong top is not an option but a requirment. I was a gambling man and didn't have a top for the first two months, then it was on the floor. After about 8 min. on the floor I found it, I thought it was dead. The eye was dry and white and all the fins were in various stages of drying. I put it back in and it came to life. That day I put and taped on a plexy glass top. After three weeks the only thing wrong with it now is that it is shy and has dropeye in both eyes (not real bad), but that is all.
