When it comes to housing an Arowana, bigger is certainly better. Starting out small with a juvenile fish may work out in the short term, but Arowanas grow rapidly and a large fish tank will quickly be necessary. Purchasing one large aquarium tank at the outset can save considerable costs in upgrades. If you must purchase housing at a staggered pace, keep your ultimate goals in mind. Read the following paragraphs for more information on Arowana fish tank size.
Avoid a Costly Compromise
Second-hand setups may seem like a bargain, but in general you will do well to avoid them. Leaks can be unbelievably destructive and detrimental to an Arowana. Even a slow, “minor” leak can ruin the stand supporting the fish tank, destroy equipment housed below it, and permanently damage carpeting and floors. Repairing a leak often requires the complete breakdown of the fish tank and is never a guaranteed solution. Consider the risk of harm to your arowana in the event of a leak unacceptable.Article by Steven Yeoh
