The Golden Arowana, also known as the Golden Dragonfish, like all arowanas is a freshwater scaled fish. Common mispellings are Golden Arrowana or Golden Arawana. Often growing up to three feet in length, these fish can be both challenging and rewarding to the aquarium enthusiast. The availability of Golden Arowanas for sale varies from country to country, as will Golden Arowana prices. Check the arowana photo gallery for pictures of Golden 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.
