The best water temperature is around 27°C-30°C and the PH must at least 7.0.


You should keep the water clean by changing it regularly because this fish will lose its appetite when the water is dirty or smelly. However, you also need to apply a filter to keep your fish in a healthy condition. Arowana loves looking down at its reflection. However, this habit can make its eyes drop. To prevent this, you are suggested to put plants, colored ball, and small stones on the bottom of the aquarium.

Arowana fish is categorized carnivorous fish, so live food is preferable. You can feed it with crickets, bloodworms, beef heart, mealworms, and small shrimp. Giving it commercial food occasionally won’t be a problem. The food should be supplied 2—3 times a day. However, you should be careful when giving it live foods. Make sure they do not have parasites that could harm your Arowana's health. In case you see your fish not active and do not want to eat, a virus may infect it. Check it soon so the disease won’t spread larger.
Those are some tips on how to care Arowana fish in an aquarium. However, you can keep more than one Arowana in one tank when they are still young. But, after your fish turn into a big Arowana, it is better for you to keep them in a separate aquarium.
