I went into a local Maidenhead Aquatics branch to buy some pleco caves and cherry shrimp (they did not have any shrimp), and there it was, a red arowana lazily cruising around the large display tank it shared with a big common pleco. I was quite taken with it. It had a kind of awareness and intelligence when it looked at you, and it was one of the most magnificent fish I've seen, although I'm still baffled by people paying six figures for them. Ever since I read Emily Voigt's book, The Dragon Behind the Glass: A True Story of Power, Obsession, and the World’s Most Coveted Fish, I've really wanted to see one. Definitely did not expect that to happen at a Maidenhead branch in Coatbridge. It was a bargain arowana as well -- only £1500! If I had that lying under the sofa or secured in a mattress and a 600++++ L tank, I would have that fish. Luckily for OH, I have none of those things.
