Silver Arowana - Wild Caught
This is by far the most popular Arowana species in the fish keeping hobby. The Silver Arowana, or Osteoglossum bicirrhosum (some spell it as Arahuana) is indigenous to South America, found in the Amazon River Basin. These natural carnivores are known to eat practically any creature it can fit into its mouth, including baby monkeys. In the wild, they are known to grow up to nearly 4 feet long. A tightly secured cover is required as the Silver Arowana is known to jump.
