ha ha ha Noddy, i haven't seen any arapaima here in the philippine wild.
what we have are mudfish or dalag (aka snakehead) together with catfish.
if you goggle for it, you will find mostly menu and recipe of them :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

definitely if we have arapaima here, it will not last long in our community.
people will feast on them. can you imagine people are now eating the meat of
giant pleco or janitor fish caught in laguna lake

what a shame! i haven't been there...it is just 60 km away from my place.
arapaima? soon it will also lorded our fresh water lakes and swamps.

the site is Rodriguez (formerly Montalban), Rizal, just above the Marikina
River that was flooded a month ago....

Sorry Noddy, i just feel disparate seeing those people starving due to
the presence if that creatures.... so better keep your plecs away from me..
or else, it will be gone :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:

on the other note, i will try to see the place and figure out how can i help to
clear that pond...it seem so full of algae...what a mess!

i know this is going to sound like bs but i actually had a dream that somebody put one of these in my tank and i wake up and i have this baby arapaima about 10 inches long... thinking oh crap what am i going to do with you.... then it ate my lil oscar... and i wake up mad as hell.... lol.... thats a bloody big fish! it makes me wonder since people apparently are breeding them if one day we can expect to find a dwarf variety... one that maybe doesnt grow 15 feet long lol....
