That's a good looking fish you got there! Have a pic of the Arowana?
You plan to get any tank mates for either or are you going to house both of them alone?

Ease out?! Not going to try to just down grade first?
I'm just getting back into the hobby, I can't believe I was able to go without for 3 years! Will you be posting any equipment on here if/when you do?

I have some pics of the arowana (aka Jaws, lol) but no good ones yet, lol. He's kinda hard to get a good one of.
The arowana is with my big pleco (aka Monstro, 7 inch or so). No plans on any other tankmates for him.
The lion is already by himself. Because of how big they get (he's a volitan) & the predatory nature, I will probably leave him alone. I know there are things they can go with just fine, but I'd rather leave him with all the room.
Glad you're getting back into the hobby!

Kinda bummed I gotta move in March though. . So now I'm limited to my 10g and a Betta. Dont wanna move a big set up a month after putting fish in it

Man that arowana is awesome!
I like the Monster too lol. I almost bought one few years back but ended up with clown loaches instead. .

Thanks for sharing the pics!

Oh man you're a brave soul to keep an arowana I remember keeping a juvenile in my 150g I was going to grow him out for a friend who owns a restaurant I spent $60 and I had a heavy glass lid with a brick or two on top and he managed to jump out of the tank and break both lids in the process, I still pull some chunks of glass out of sand every once in awhile (glass was tempered)

Wow, they are a strong fish then. They remind me of the arapima with them jumping.

Yes, the arowana can be strong. So far mine is doing great. I have a screened hood one one side (like a terrarium style) weighed down with potted plants. The other side where the filter is has glass & potted plants. Every now and then I'll hear him bounce off the screened hood, but nothing too intense yet.

UPDATE ON ORIGINAL POST:
My lion is now in the 75 gallon (thought it would never be ready) and ate his first frozen krill yesterday with no problems whatsoever. He knows exactly what the feeding tongs mean, lol. I grabbed some frozen silversides, too, but will not try those until next feeding day.
He is happy, healthy, and very interesting!
