LFS has a pearl white one 5 foot long and by the look of it could inhale a 1lb rat.
your betta better be good at hideing.

They're gorgeous fish, but hopefully you're prepared for the large space it needs. I believe they need at least 200 gallons when full grown.

I wouldn't risk putting it in with your betta. How big is your tank, anyway?

take him back to where you bought him.

according to aqadvisor a 10g with a female betta and an asian arowana is 533% overstocked

PLEASE remove the betta or take the aro back to the store. There is simply no way that a Betta can live with a predator like that. No way.

I'd highly suggest taking the Aro back as all you have ATM is a 10g tank. Which is no where near to what a baby arowana should have!

Their compatibility will really come down to how fast the Arowana grows. Keep in mind as the Arowana's digestive organs continue to develop he will soon be able to take in larger chunks of food as Arowana's mouths can open up to be quite large in proportion to his body.

In the end, it's your aquarium pets so the risk is all yours but don't be surprised to see your betta missing one day,

*rolls eyes* This is person is NOT a troll. He's an active user, asks intelligent questions, and typically trolls do their best to get attention by posting the same thread in multiple subforums- which this person has not. Before you go slinging around accusations, make sure the accusation fits the person.
