Good to hear!

How long is the 125? From what I've read online arowanas need 8 ft tanks.

Honestly, I wouldn't put an oscar with an arowana.

1) oscars are usually the meanest of the cichlids (not including the african family)

2) arowanas can have their own attitude problems.

3) arowanas are expensive fish, you're adding a fish that has known aggression issues, you could very well be on your way to have an expensive fish killed.

4) oscars are messy fish, arowanas need near perfect conditions.

IMO, you should re-home the oscar before the problems start.

I had a baby aro and a Oscar a long time ago. One day the Oscar decided to bite him on the bottom of it's throat . Instant death. Separate them.

The arrowana is 11" long and the Oscar is 2" so if anything the Oscar will become a meal for the arrowana.

Most important rule..... never ever ever ever purchase a fish for your tank when you don't even know what it is. That just doesn't make sense and can bite you in the butt or, even worse, result in your existing fish being killed.

75: blood parrots, featherfin cat, emperor tetras, turquoise rainbowfish, BN plecos, japanese trapdoor; 46: WCMM, gold inca snails, ghost, bamboo & amano shrimp, kuhli loaches, rummynose & ember tetras, endlers, platies, flame gourami, guppies; 16: pygmy, peppered, loxozonus corys, otos, assassins, RCS ... ~ Research PRIOR to purchase.... ~
