I was browsing a classified ad site and came across an Asian company advertising Arowana. Surely these can't be natural colours? I'm suspecting that they could be injecting dyes into them, or am I wrong and Arowana do come in such brilliant colours these days?
Here's the link wtfthis.me/24SEGjY

Super Red Asian Arowana... legitimate species. Looks jaw dropping;)

If you're willing to 're mortgage the house then you can get one. Not so hard to keep. Truly amazing fish.

Mind you at 500$ it's cheap. A company based in Dublin was importing them a few years back starting at a grand each.

I wonder would ther be any helping nature out a bit going on.

Still, how much does Bart charge for an 8' tank :cool:

I've a 2ft silver aro in a 9ft tank and he/she uses every inch of it.
I was lucky enough to see Asian arowana in a breeders farm and though the colours are amazing, it's not as vivid as the site shows , maybe just a little bit of photo shop used :ohmy:

I suspect that by the time you pay shipping, VAT, import duties etc the price will be getting close to $1,000

Truly stunning fish, on my "to keep" list but want minimum 10 x 4 x 3 tank for them!
Need to be careful as they are good at jumping tho!
