I have an 7inch silver arowanas in a tank with some angles to accompany him. I love Oscars so much want to add them too. But both shouldn't fit in each others mouth and also not fight.
So what size oscars should i buy?

How big is the tank you have the Arowana in? I hope it is at least 125 gallons. Some Arowanas can get up to 48" long.

I found this on this website arowana-fish.org
"Viral videos are surfacing the internet containing Arowana fish feeding on live rabbits, small birds, rats, and more. Advanced marine specialists refer to it as “bad publicity”. Horrific feedings of Arowanas jumping out of the water to catch their prey shouldn’t be publicized in this manner. Interestingly enough, some countries have made it illegal to record videos of aggressive feedings just for this reason."

There is enough room for the Arowana currently, it's in a insulated box and has lots of room to move. It will need more space when it's older but it will be fine for at least 12 months.

I'm sorry for the late reply but every one is going well now i got a nearly 4 inch albino oscar.
Actually i got this idea from KG Tropicals YouTube channel.

Although i frequently check the tank to make sure everything is okay.

But i got to admit, Oscars are so awesome to keep. They are much more fun to see and feed.

Would love to see photos of your Arowana!

I saw a 14 inch platinum Arowana at my LFS a few days ago... beautiful.

Only put Oscars with Oscars, and good luck with that. :rofl:
I think back in the day, my dad had an oscar with a huge featherfin called Fred... He's very passionate about oscars, not sure why though. They're horrible things lol.

What is "Innretanment"? Do you mean entertainment?
