Osteoglossum ferreirai (Black Arowana)
Adults resemble the silver arowana, but the juveniles are black with a distinctive cream-coloured band running along the midline of the fish.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
An outstanding fish for the aquarist with a gigantic aquarium, young species are often offered for sale at relatively low prices. Given their large adult size, as well as relatively rapid growth, they are not really suitable for most home aquaria.
In terms of temperament, these fish are not especially demanding. They get along well with other fishes of similar size.
Breeding not achieved in domestic aquaria, but in public aquaria it has been observed. These fish are mouthbrooders, with the males protecting the eggs and fry.
|Water Parameters||Soft, acid water preferred, but adaptable|
