He is my first arowana.
He is very tame and my wife's favorite.
(So she seems to regard other red arowana as nuisances.)

He is the biggest one and very tame to me.
[Right] Mar. 2004, 55cm
When I move him to the bigger tank, he jumped out.
After that his top scales became rugged.
[Left] Three months later, he recovered like this.
If he didn't have such an accident, be became more...

In juvenile days, his scale were pale and flat.
I associated him with a saury.

Currently red color development is seen at the scale edge like thin frames.
Also small red dots are seen inside scales.
I hope his red color will become more bright and clear.

I prefered his shape and brilliant scales.
Red color developed with spots (not dots).
And, he is the best gluttonous.
I was bitten by him for several times.

He had a red mouth, red pectoral fins and deep green skin.
So I expect very much of his color development.
But he is so timid that he alway has some injuries.

Blood Red

His bright color and body shape, espacially long body and small head, are my favorite.
(I'm afraid you can't see from this picture but) I can see pink color on his gills.
The shop owner said this is the sign of red color develpoment.

tank tank
Tanks: Two 1200x600x450 (WLH mm) and three 900x450x450 (WLH mm)
I know these tanks already have been small.
I should buy 2400 wide tank and mix them in the near future.
As tanks are small, water conditions are far from stable.
So I have to change water so often.
