What size tank could I house a baby silver arowana in? How fast would it out grow the tank? How about what size would it need as an adult?? Thanks in advance guys.

Well baby fish can certainly grow out in smaller tanks, but its always recommended to have a tank that will house the fish as an adult. Future upgrading plans dont always work out. Arrows need long tanks and enough room to turn in. 6ft length, 18 width, 24 is better. You will need a minimum 125g with 180 being better.

These are giant fish, upwards of three feet long and need very large tanks. Many sites recommend minimum of 250 gallons, but even that will be a drop in the bucket. I would not want to keep a 3 foot fish in anything less than an 8 foot by 4 foot tank, in the neighborhood of 400 or 500 gallons for an adult fish. They grow fast too so the 250 wouldn't do for that long. I think there are smaller types of arowana though, that might be kept in smaller tanks.

Yes.. an upgrade on my comment. Silver Aros get very large, ergo massive tank needed. Good job P.

if you want an arowrona - i would suggest a Jardini - they don't get as big as a silver - but 2 feet max i think captive. so a 180 or 220 will do.

even a 180g is not good enough for life, considering the width of the 180g is just as long as the fish. A minimumtank size for the life of the jardini should be a at least 8x3
