Large aquariums with a lot of free areas to swim on. This species is an excellent jumper so a secure top is necessary. The bottom decoration is of less importance since this fish dwells in the upper water regions. A few larger floating plants are appreciated.
Do not use sharp objects since arowanas are easily frightened and might hurt themselves And an adult asian arowana will require about 6 months to regenerate a dropped scale..
Accepts all kind of live food
