website has lots of pictures of the fish that we offer for sale.
Will the fish you get look like the fish in our pictures? No!
This is like buying a kitten or a puppy, that will change as it
grows and matures.
We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to ship. Not so
small that they will not do well when shipped. Yet not so big
that they will have trouble adjusting to a new home.
The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the
ones we ship that we raised up, and you can too!
Out of Stock
interested in buying an item that's marked "Out
of Stock", we recommend that you
add this page to your favorites or bookmarks and check back on
this page from time to time.
Generally, we do not know when an item will be back in stock. It
might be a few days, or it might be much longer.
We usually do not get advance notice, so we can't supply you
with any more information, and it will do no good to email us
and ask us, when we'll have it back in stock.
We know that
some customers would like to make a special request with
their order. For example, "the largest Oscar", or "the
smallest Oscar", or "2 male and 4 female Platies", "the
reddest Red Betta Male", etc.
If you send us a Special Request with your order, we'll
try to send you what you request. Click

When they are small, Arowanas should be fed
live and frozen brine shrimp, black worms, and
a few small fish. My friend Fred used to keep
his Arowanas in an aquarium with hundreds of
small White Clouds. I could see the Arowanas
usually did well, but I wondered how many White
Clouds were eaten by the small Arowanas.
Arowanas grow larger they are usually fed larger
fish. Silver Arowanas have been seen leaping
out of the water to eat insects from trees.
African Arowanas will survive and grow on the
diet given above, but this fish is also a filter-feeder,
and feeding filter-feeding fish in aquariums
is usually very difficult. Click

keep Arowanas in our aquariums for only a few
weeks, until they were acclimated and ready
to be shipped to our customers. So we don't

seen in large aquariums with large Plecostomus
Catfish, large active Cichlids, large Catfish,
and large Tinfoil Barbs. Click

Size and Lifespan
All the various species of Arowanas can grow

The word Arowana is often spelled in alternate
ways such as Arrowana, Arawana, and Aruana.
