 To  the  best  of  my  knowledge,  drop  eyes  are  attributed  to  over-feeding.    So  obviously  all  arowanas  displayed  at  lfs  would  be  droop  eyed.
 An  EXTRA  LARGE  TANK  is  reqd  to  house  both  arowana  and  a  Giant  gourami.    Both  can  easily  grow  over  2.5'.    I've  had  4  tin  foils  survive  with  an  australian  arowana  for  around  1.5  yrs.    I've  also  had  2  full  grown  angels  with  the  australian  arowana  and  a  full  grown  oscar  in  a  4'  tank.    Think  tinfoils  would  be  a  good  idea.

 Madhu  thanks  for  the  info.  But  afa  I  had  been  told  long  back  when  I  started  keeping  my  Aorwanas  were  that  it  is  basically  because  of  water  quality  and  bad  feeding  habits.

 As  simple  as  this  Smile                

 
 Vijay  this  thing  didn't  work  out  for  me.
 I  removed  the  oscars  and  put  them  with  parrots.  Parrots  attacked  them  and  injured  them.
 Then  I  put  oscar  with  goldfish-  the  first  day  I  got  them(oscars){about  10  days  back}  I  had  temporarily  put  them  with  goldfish  for  2  days,  that  time  they  were  not  troubling  the  poor  gold  fish.  Now  I  had  to  put  them  somewhere,  so  back  to  goldfish  tank.  They  started  attacking  the  gold.
 Had  to  remove  them.  Now  angels  had  to  be  put  somewhere,  so  they  went  with  parrots,  and  this  arrangement  worked  fine.
 End  result  of  the  day  is,  injured  oscars,  injured  gold.    Crying or Very sad  and  highly  aggressive  parrots.  They  even  bit  me  many  a  times  while  my  hand  was  in  the  tank.  First  I  thought  what  possible  harm  can  a  fish  do  which  even  can't  close  its  mouth,  but  then  realised  that  they  really  bite  hard.  Hard  enough  to  hurt  a  fish.
 Now  the  final  scene  is  arowana  with  angels  with  parrots.
 The  parrot  tried  to  bite  the  aro  too,  but  didn't  do  it

 Hi  all,  this  is  my  first  post:
 
 I  have  a  4'  (L)  x  1'  (B)  x  2  '  (H)  tank,  with  a  little  10"  glass  platform  on  one  side.  This  tank  houses:
 
 Two    silver  Arowanas  (15"  and  9")
 
 Two  smallish  jewel  fish  (about  4")
 
 One  white  and  one  black  pleco  (6"  and  8"  approx)
 
 Two  upsidedown  catfish  (4"  and  6")
 
 Four  terrapins  of  varying  sizes  (2"  to  5"  approx).  The  glass  platform  is  for  them  to  climb  on  and  sit  on  the  rocks,  but  they  prefer  to  swim  around  and  stay  underwater  mostly.  
 
 Everyone  seems  quite  happy  with  each  other.  Initially  the  bigger  Arow  was  alone  and  when  I  got  the  small  guy,  he  gave  him  a  hard  time.  However,  now  they  are  completely  bonded  and  move  around  like  a  pair  all  the  time.  
 
 The  terrapins  were  causing  a  problem  with  the  water,  which  my  internal  filter  and  undergravel  filter  couldn't  handle,  so  I  have  just  added  a  Eheim  2217.  Now  the  water  is  very  clear.
 
 I'm  now  thinking  of  adding  a  golden  pearl  arowana  to  the  family.  
 
 I  will  soon  be  upgrading  to  a  bigger  tank  (approx  7X3X2),  so  they  all  have  enough  space.
