    It is an impressive tank, anybody know how big it is? I want to say I read it was a 600, but I could be making that up... :biglaugh2:

    Didn't see any mention of the tank on their website

    Osaka in coon rapids has a nice tank with a large arowana and a couple of 4 inch arowana's that were added recently. I had a number of arowana's in the past. Cool fish. In the wild these fish will jump of the water and grab bugs/food off tree branches hanging over rivers. Amazing fish. I am sure you can find some videos on youtube showing this. The are jumpers and I used to keep something heavy on the cover of the tank so it didn't knock the cover off and then jump.

    Thanks for the compliments. It has been an awesome tank to work on and put together. Sourcing the fish for this tank was the best part and now watching them grow over the last year or so has been a blast. The Arowana is my favorite :)

    If that is a platinum arowana it is extremely rare. Jeffie- can you get me that same color in a florida gar?

    Possibly the tank with shipping from Japan-not the fish.

    It' not a platinum. Just a standard silver arowana. I'll check into the gar for you.
