Recommended Diet
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.

As 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.

Shown above a nice 8" long Arowana, swimming in one of our aquariums, when one of us snapped this picture.

We 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 have much first hand experience about compatible tank mates for Arowanas. Arowanas are often seen in large aquariums with large Plecostomus Catfish, large active Cichlids, large Catfish, and large Tinfoil Barbs.

Size and Lifespan
All the various species of Arowanas can grow to be be very large. The maximum known sizes are given in the table above. Their lifespans are unknown to us, but all Arowana species probably live for many years.

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