    LOL, Goldtrap, somehow, I get the feeling, from his post, that he probably doesn't (and wouldn't) own one.

    Hi,

    No, I have never owned one, and I wouldn't. I think I wouldn't even own one of the smaller species of arowana, but that's more because I prefer to have many fish instead of one or a few.

    No apologies necessary carnivorous. Happens all the time, and it's no big deal anyway. :-)

    Take care!

    Chris.

    I love the prehistoric fishes but only own small killifishes because I have no room for such monsters like arrowanas, paddlefish, sturgeon, FW stingrays, knifefishes, etc. If you're interested in reading a basic introduction about how the japanese keep these large fishes check out Jurassic Fishes published by TFH books.

    BTW anybody keeping Celocanths in captivity(zoos/aquariums I mean)?

    Okay.. it may be one of the biggest but it most certainly isn't the most expensive. I was present a few weeks ago at the import of a Koi from Japan, the price for the fish was $4 500 000, (those are American Dollars btw) shipping cost an additional $50 000 and then the vet check once it got here was $200 000. I'm thinking the guy that bought the fish was really into Koi....
    I typo, therefore I edit.
