    Dear All
    Recently i bought a arowana from a importer.He import all his arowana from Singapore.This is my first arowana before i was having flowerhorn few years back he died and now recently i was very interested to have a arowana googled many site and watched many videos.Am member of MFK from 2009 after my flowerhorn died i did not login to the site be frankly.Now two days back i got a arowana he is doing well he took food from yesterday morning am feeding dry ghost shrimp e

    This fellow is around six to seven inches,Fins are in pale orange,Good shining scales and very aggressive he jumps to catch the shrimps and he has a tank mate (Leapord Pleco around four inch).I got him without the certificate and chip because i don't want to sell him.So please help me to identify this cute guy whether he is RTG or Banjar Red or any other variety.

    Thanks In Advance

    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
