Ok since the pond is still looking empty, I have booked a few more fish.

Will be adding them to the pond this weekend.



A xback and a high back gold.

Will share an update after the release this weekend

This is turning into the biggest Arowana abode on MFK I'd bet, what's the count now? -- we need something like a scoreboard next to the pond :)

Just out of curiosity I'm wondering what's the pond's usual day time temperature if you've ever checked? I'd also bet nitrate levels are super low.

Interesting, what does the process in Sweden entail in order to own an Asian Aro? Do you have to get a special permit or similar?

No but here is nobody thats importing asians. As long as it is legit with cites and certificate you only have to register it at something called jordbruksverket wich is an authority that keeping a register of all animals with an id chip. There is a store in denmark and one in norway that usually have asians in stock. If they dont have they import once or twice a year. But the prices are insanly high through them. But i did see that mark from duketown stingrays was importing asians for fairly prices. So im considering buying one from him and have it shipped overnight buy ups for me. An malaysian bukit merah bluebase crossback with shipping is roughly 700 euros through duketown. An indonesian banjar red is 455 euro through duketown with shipping. In norway and denmark an banjar is 700euros
