Monster usually has them, I grabbed one from there, but I haven’t had the best luck with fish from there. The only fish I bought at monster aquarium that has survived is my orino peacock bass. I bought a silver there and it grew to about 18” from November until 2 weeks ago and then one morning he was dead in PERFECT condition with what looked like his lungs or something on the bottom of the tank. So something weird was going on inside of him I’m thinking

Is there a reason you want a wild caught one? As for where to get a black arowana, just look around at local fish stores and online to see when one becomes available

I have noticed that the wild caught ones look much nicer(keep the black longer and are darker) they also have nicer genes so they are less likely to get drop eye
