      Yes she did. She told the seller that the green arowana will be put into a tank with a big silver arowana, the seller insist that silver arowana are afraid of green arowanas whatever the size and quoted that silver arowanas are the most kind of all arowanas in the world just why my sister thought its okay.

      So sorry the store gave awful advise.
      And if in the future you want to try and add anything to the tank please do quarantine it first. It would be a shame to lose such a large fish over an illness being introduced.

      And I’d advise against the zebra pleco. It’s beautiful, but the arrow will almost certainly eat it and that highly dangerous and damaging because of its fin spikes.

      This is a bad advice. Please do not keep a zebra pleco that maxes out at 3.5” with an arowana. If anything, you can look at some of the larger species like royal plecos or L25 plecos but avoid dwarfs like hypancistrus, peckoltia, and most ancistrus. Do some research and keep asking questions

      I agree on "no zebra pleco".

      They are armed but are tiny. Plus very much expensive, like Asian arowana. Usually.

      DId somebody really just recommend a zebra pleco for the 200g with the arowana?

      And not to be rude man but it should have been common sense that your nearly 3' long arowana would eat the 4-6" skinny fish. How could you not realize this and own an aro that big?

      Take it easy. Her and her sister are caring for the father’s fish who recently passed. They are learning. What’s lame is the LFS who took advantage of their lack of knowledge and promised them it would be fine to put a smaller aro with theirs.

      How easy do you want me to take it? Not like I said anything out of line... don't see how you could have a giant predatory fish and think that putting a very small fish with it is going to work out fine. Also bought the new aro without doing any sort of research on Aro's beforehand, could have easily been avoided. Real victim here is the small Aro.

      OP, no disrespect meant to you personally, but this should be a learning experience, if nobody tells you what you did wrong, and only coddles you, perhaps you won't learn at all. If somebody tells you something that seems too good to be true (as this should have)... do a little research on your own.
