The Australian Arowana -
Scleropages Jardini, also known as the Australian Dragonfish, like all arowanas is a freshwater scaled fish. Common mispellings are Australian Arrowana or Australian Arawana. Often growing up to three feet in length, these fish can be both challenging and rewarding to the aquarium enthusiast. The availability of Australian Arowanas for sale varies from country to country, as will Australian Arowana prices. Check the arowana photo gallery for pictures of Australian Arownas.
One major concern with buying arowanas is that not all arowanas can be purchased legally. Currently, CITES has listed the Asian Arowana as an endangered species. While it is legal in some countries to buy and sell captive bred Asian arowanas, in other countries such as the US, it is not. Other species of arowana are generally no problem to purchase, and cost less, yet can still be just as fulfilling pets and excellent aquarium fish. Australian Arowanas are fine to purchase and are therefore much less expensive fish.
