    It's clearly a Banjar Red/Yellowtail arowana. There are 6 levels of scales of aro, rtg usually goes til 4th levelshine if you are lucky it goes til 5th level but rarely crossed (although I've seen an RTG that crossed when matured.) HBRTG hits 5th level, if you are lucky 6th level (crossback). Banjar looks like green aro with red or yellow tails and fins.
    Rtg and hbrtg are gold in scales, banjar scales are silverish to greenish
