Hello there, did you know Silver Arowana is
bone-tongued fish with two barrels and there are also other interesting facts about them. Now some of you guys told me to make a video

with Top 10 Facts about silver arowana. Number 1, Human Interactive
Some say silver arowana are for lifetime and can live for 10 to 20 years when captivated
as pets in good environment. They can become very friendly with the owner
and can be taught to know his owner, hand feed them and even stroke like dogs. They can also conditioned to sounds, music
or other things and can become very interactive to yourself. But it needs a lot of patience. Number 2, Water Monkeys
Silver Arowana are also called water monkeys because they jump out of water to catch prey
and insects above water surface. They can jump more than 5 ft. above water
so if you keep them in aquaria you need to make sure it has strong closed lids or you
may find your arowana jumped out of the tank and dead on the ground or if not it can hurt
them badly which may be hard to recover. Number 3, Monster Fish
Silver Arowana can grow to large sizes very quickly and it’s always better to keep them
in large tanks and ponds. They grow to 30 to 47 inches in length and
should be treated with special foods that I will discuss in the later part of this video. They have a lifespan of 10 years or more in
wild and 10 to 20 years in captivity. Number 4, Space Occupier
Silver arowana can grow to large size quickly and should be kept in tanks that above 120
gallons. Silver Arowana themselves might like to kept
in big ponds because it gives them sufficient room and confidence to swim and it makes them
grow faster. But if you keep them in aquarium make sure
you keep the aquarium lid tightly closed like I said earlier. Also they like strong filtration in water
and it makes them swim more calmly and happily. Number 5, Need Special Diet
Silver arowana like other arowana are omnivores and they feed on fish, plant matters, insects,
birds. Turtles, rodents, snakes and even monkey are
pleasing to them. In aquarium young silver arowana should feed
crickets, shrimps, peeled prawns, pellets, feeder goldfish while adults silver arowana
should be feed frozen whole fish, peeled prawns, pellets, frogs, crickets and some say feeding
blood worms will bring out the color. Number 6, Dragon Fish
Silver Arowana are also called dragon fish because of their dragon like face and scales
and long tail. In Chinese culture keeping arowana is believed
to bring good fortune and prosperity. So you might always be willing have one in
your home. Number 7, Aggressive Nature
Jardini Arowana are most aggressive arowanas compared to it silver arowana are less aggressive
however bigger silver arowana should not be kept with any fish that is smaller than his
mouth opening because there are chances that it can eat them. Also they should not be kept with bigger fishes
that can swallow them mostly such mistakes could be done when arowanas are kept in ponds. Number 8, Diurnal Animal
Silver Arowana are diurnal animal that is they are active during the day and becomes
calm or low swimmers during the night. So you can keep the filtration on but the
lights off during the night in aquariums when you keep silver arowana. Number 9, Mouth brooders
Like most arowana breeds they are Mouth brooders that is female lays eggs and fertilized eggs
are carried in the mouth of male until the fries become 5 weeks old. In case of Silver arowana fertilization takes
place in water and both male and female release sperms and egg into the water. Mating season of silver arowana takes place
at the beginning of the flooding season. Number 10, Protected Fries
Once the silver arowana fries are born they remain in the mouth of male father until 3
weeks old or so to hide from predators or possible treats but after 5 weeks or so they
become ready for independent life. Young arowana can live in groups however bigger
silver arowana are aggressive and should be kept with similar such fishes. Since arowana were hunted fiercely in wild
some Asian arowana are at the verge of extinction. Silver Arowana are however easily breed and
least concerned species of arowana they are most commonly kept in aquaria. That’s it for now. As always Subscribe to my channel if you haven’t
