The Black Arowana -
Osteoglossum Ferreirai, also known as the Black Dragonfish, like all arowanas is a freshwater scaled fish. Common mispellings are Black Arrowana or Black Arawana. Often growing up to three feet in length, these fish can be both challenging and rewarding to the aquarium enthusiast. The availability of Black Arowanas for sale varies from country to country, as will Black Arowana prices. Check the arowana photo gallery for pictures of Black Arownas. Black arowanas can grow very large in size, so it is important to have an aquarium that can accomodate them. The minimum size aquarium for an arowana is 72" x 24" x 24", but the bigger the aquarium, the happier the fish will be. Ensuring that you have proper aquarium supplies, including proper filters and filtration, will help prevent illness and keep your arowana healthy.
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.
