The Albino Silver Arowana (Osteoglossum bicirrhosum) is a captivating and unique fish that is highly sought after by aquarium enthusiasts. Here are some key details about this species:

General Information:

  • Scientific Name: Osteoglossum bicirrhosum
  • Common Name: Albino Silver Arowana
  • Size: At 10-12 cm, this arowana is still a juvenile. Adult Silver Arowanas can grow up to 90 cm (35 inches) or more in captivity.
  • Lifespan: They can live up to 10-15 years with proper care.

Appearance:

  • Coloration: As an albino variant, this arowana has a pale, almost white body with red or pink eyes due to the lack of pigmentation.
  • Body Shape: They have an elongated, streamlined body with large, metallic scales and long pectoral fins. The dorsal and anal fins extend towards the tail, giving them a graceful appearance.

Habitat and Tank Requirements:

  • Tank Size: A minimum of 500 liters (about 132 gallons) is recommended for juveniles, but adults will require significantly larger tanks, ideally 1000 liters (about 264 gallons) or more.
  • Water Parameters:
    • Temperature: 24-28°C (75-82°F)
    • pH: 6.5-7.5
    • Hardness: Soft to moderately hard
  • Tank Setup: They prefer a tank with plenty of open swimming space and a secure lid, as they are known to jump. Minimal decorations are needed, but some driftwood and large plants can be used for aesthetics.
  • Filtration: Strong filtration is essential due to their size and the amount of waste they produce.

Diet:

  • Diet: Carnivorous. They can be fed a variety of live, frozen, or prepared foods such as shrimp, fish fillets, insects, and specially formulated arowana pellets.
  • Feeding Frequency: Juveniles should be fed daily, while adults can be fed every other day.

Behavior and Compatibility:

  • Behavior: Generally peaceful towards fish of similar size, but they can be aggressive or predatory towards smaller fish. They are surface dwellers and have a tendency to jump.
  • Compatibility: Best kept with other large, non-aggressive fish. Avoid housing them with very small fish that can be seen as prey.

Care Level:

  • Care Level: Moderate to difficult. They require specific water parameters, a large tank, and careful feeding and maintenance to thrive.
