Arowana Price (Singapore)

All Prices are in SGD
All prices are for Aros with Cert
Baby 3-7 inches

Silver Aro - $12 to $18

Jardini - $18 to $28

Leicharti - N.A

Black Aro - N.A

YT/Green Aro - $50 to $100

Grade 1.5 - $150 to $250

RTG - $300 to $500

Red - $1500 to $2400

Xback - $1800 to $2800

there are much more expensive Asian ones like the high back RTG,Platinum Aros,Yi Tiao Long (Meaning the scales from the top are all in a straight line),short bodied aros,etc.
A High Back RTG should cost at least 200 to 500 more than a normal RTG.
A Platinum Aro is rarely seen but should cost 10-20 times more than the orginal aro. (eg. Red Aro - $2000,Platinum Red - $20,000)
A short bodied Aro should cost 4 times a much as the normal Aro, (eg.RTG - $400,Short bodied RTG $1600)
A Yi Tiao Long (YTL) should cost 2 times as much as the original Aro.Depending on the shine and the quality.
Mostly the price will only go up for the Aro should the colour intensity or shine be brighter and stronger.

here in MD i've seen the prices for silvers and jars vary. I've seen silvers go from 12.95 for a 2" up to $60 for a 6". Jars range from $69 for a 4" up to $89 for 6". They have a silver over at Scales that is about 18" or so that went for $200.

Around here you can expect them for as little as 2"-24"
Some as little as 2"-8" i have seen selling for around $50-$80
Some of the large ones 18"-24" for around $100 and some well over $200...
BTW these are silvers, around here you dont usually expect any other arowanas rather than silver.....

Here in Ottawa, Canada, the price for a 2" silver aro at a LFS is $35 on average. For a 6", expect to pay about $90. For a 6" jardini about $130.

If you are like me and special order from private dealers, it's a lot cheaper. I paid $40 for my 6" silver.
