The Silver Arowana, also known as the Dragon Fish or Monkey Fish, is a freshwater fish indigenous to South America.

Renowned for its hunting ability and large size, this fish is one of the most iconic around and will be the prized possession of any hobby aquarist.

The Silver Arowana is a bony, freshwater fish that is native to the South American Amazon River Basin.

Also known as the Dragon Fish, Monkey Fish, and occasionally misspelt as Arawana and Arahuana, this fish is adored by many hobby aquarists.

Arowana are strong powerful swimmers, and can be fairly aggressive at times. They are a predator fish that can grow up to 4 foot in size and weigh in excess of 6kg. When raised in captivity you should expect an Arowana to have a lifespan of 10-15 years.

If you ever encounter them in the wild, you will notice their unique hunting style. They have a huge leap which allows them to hunt animals on low level branches etc.
