What size aquarium? Personally wouldn't risk Aro with African Cichlids.

4ft long . yeah I'm planning to move the chichild to another tank. let the aro grow bigger and slowly introduce tank mates . can I just move my arrowana straight to the tank or theres a certain temperature and ph level for aro

temperature mid 70s to low 80s, pH around 6.5, but 6-7 is fine, but you will need a larger tank eventually
