A graceful swimmer that spends much of its time near the surface, the Arowana will also jump, so a really good aquarium cover should be used. While it prefers live food, it will sometimes adapt to pellet foods when kept in the aquarium. Safe only with other fish too large to swallow, you should avoid fin nippers that might startle the Arowana causing it to try to jump and crash into the top cover.
