Have anyone seen Jeremy Wade swimming with arapaimas and manatees in Singapore?

I don't think any reputable fish store would bother selling Arapaima for the simple reason is they'll be absolutely no market for one of these fish. If any fish store owner was to sell one of these fish then they would obviously show incredible ignorance. I doubt whether there is anyone in the UK who has an aquarium big enough for one of these fish

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

O also arapaima may become an introduced species in tropical regions like Bolivia.

Yeah, at the Camden aquarium there is one arapaima that is about 8 feet long (at the moment). They can grow up to 15 feet long in the wild. That is like trying to keep a dolphin or a small great white shark in your home. Great idea! :blink:

I've seen them in the UK. I remember that guy who built a massive tank in his basement. Even he couldn't fit one in there.
