Arowana is famous fish in my country, because its beautiful fish and the price is so exspensive.
The red, super red, blood red, or chili red is known only from the upper part of the Kapuas River and nearby lakes in western Borneo, Indonesia.
In mature super red arowanas, the gill covers, lateral scales, and fin membranes of these fishes are metallic red, with the exact hue varying from gold-tinged to deep red. The back is dark brown.
In juveniles, the darker the dorsal colouration, the deeper the red will be on maturity.
Super red arowana (aro sr) is one type of freshwater ornamental fish in Indonesia with a price range of five million Rupiahs to the size of 12-20 cm.
"aro sr" serve as a symbol of status as a lawyer, businessman, notary public, politicians, officials etc.
In some areas, demand for Super red arowana is high enough.
they think that by having  Super red arowana, social status will be raised better than ever.
Even for a specific community such as lawyers and advocates seemed to be a necessary that puts an aquarium in their offices.
Super red arowana provide added value particularly distinguished them that sell services to customers.
Red Arowana is one of the kinds Asian arowanas. Asian arowanas grow up to 90 cm total length.
Like all Scleropages, Asian arowanas have long bodies, large, elongate pectoral fins, dorsal and anal fins located far back on the body; and a much larger caudal fin than that of their South American relative, the silver arowana (Osteoglossum bicirrhosum).
The mouth is oblique with a very wide gape. The prominent lower jaw has two barbels at its tip. The gill rakers are stout. Asian arowanas bear teeth on many bones of the mouth, including the jaws, vomer, palatines, pterygoids, parasphenoid, and tongue.
Asian arowana scales are large, cycloid, and, in some varieties, metallic coloured, with a distinctive mosaic pattern of raised ribs.
The lateral scales are arranged in horizontal rows numbered from the most ventral (first level) to the most dorsal (fifth level), with dorsal scales designated the sixth level.
Red Arowana require a large aquarium, Because they can grow up to 90 centimetres long.
They are territorial and may be kept with other Scleropages only in a very large aquarium, provided all fish are of similar size.
Like other arowanas, they need a tight-fitting cover to prevent jumping. The water should be well-filtered, soft, and slightly acidic, and maintained at a temperature of 24–30° C.
Aquarists recommend live foods and meaty prepared foods. Examples of appropriate live foods include scorpions, centipedes, mealworms, crickets, shrimps, feeder fish, small frogs, and earthworms.
Prepared foods include prawns (shrimp), lean pork, frozen fish food, and pelleted food.
