I've never kept these fish before. However I am familiar with them and I know how big they can get. I've seen people who have them in a 125 gallon tank, however personally I don't think it's big enough for one of these fish once they reach adulthood. I think you should be looking at something twice a size if you are serious about keeping these fish long term.

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

Once the Aro reaches 14ins, the 18in width of a 125 becomes restrictive. They need room to turn around, and can easily break their spine in cramped quarters. 2 Oscars is the limit for 125g, having a FH and cat makes it overstocked. FYI there will come a time when the FH will kill your Oscars. FH are insanely aggressive, are generally kept alone, or at least with other Central American cichlids of similar temper. They do not mix with mild South Americans, of which Oscars are. To simplify.. you should have 2 Oscars ONLY in a 125 tank.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

what kind of an aro are you considering? can you imagine a 30" silver aro in 5ft tank after two years... that is now my situation...
so better aim for a bigger tank if you really want an arowana..

You need a minimum of 6x2x2 for an aro but generally bigger

Haku, I knew your were good.
