Well, from what I've read.... If you want an arrowana, go buy a 30 by 30 foot tank and a new house to put it in. Lol, good luck!

I used to keep an arrowana and large predator fish(my favorites) when I used to live with my parents bare minimum is a 200 gallon aquarium that is large and high enough. These fish depending on types(as there are some dwarf variants) will reach at least 16" and much more in most cases. Beautiful fish, not very easy to maintains requires a lot of attention and a huge tank or pond.

Something with a 8' x 2' footprint is the bare minimum for a decent size adult. Ideally 3' wide.

this is another monster fish then, a bit like the giant gourami and pacu. im sure I heard somewhere the silver colour arowana cant get like 30inches long, it would be a nightmare finding a good tank for this. its wishful thinking lol a dream fish. maybe one day if I had more space.

Here is a video I took several years ago at the Baltimore Aquarium. The Silver Arowana was every bit of 36", probably more.
