hi there


1. arowanas are mouth breeders.
2. the male keeps the eggs in its mouth till hatching.
3. the male continues to protect its babies in its mouth if it senses danger or harm.
4. in local farms Singapore, breeders have to force open the male's mouth to retrieve all eggs.
5. it is the female that goes for the eggs if they are left unattended by the male.
