Arrow ~> Baby Arapaima Gigas and Golden arowana <~ ( names for them would be accepted)

NOTICE: I'm well aware of the sizes and the capacity of which I would need to keep these fishes..I'm not new to keeping large fresh water fishes so please do not make STUPID comments like i should give them away and blah blah blah...if u have to say these things please don't bother to comment...thanx!

Anyways these are my new babies and i have both each in 6ft tanks temporarily i.e they both have their own tanks :) also i have pond arangements in place and even a lake in my family estate to place the arapaima if needed...they are doing well ! Both are feeding on live food and and are growing nicely. Hope you guys like them as much as i do!

Here is my baby arapaima:







Baby gold jardini:

Those are gorgeous. I don't personally agree with them being sold but I am glad they are with someone who knows what they are doing!

Jardini arowanas are illegal to sell stateside, but it's ridiculously easy to find silvers. >_>

I agree so i took them from a local dealer before some idiot takes them and suffers them. Never thought i would see a arapaima in real now i have one...cant imagine how happy i am to have him. The price was a bit steep but its worth it

I do intend to breed the super red jardini and arapaima gigas later on...we have 18 acres of land that has a nice river running thru it. So i can tap in to it and use the local small fishes for food for them :)

OH and i have 8 silver arowanas , also tiger shovel nose cat fish , Red tail cat fish and clown knife fish...and irredescent sharks...i jus sold my pacus they became a pain in the butt.

Very nice to see you back online bettaboy.
Is the arapaima albino? Or are babies just really pale? O.o Never seen one before!
