Default How to buy a Red Arowana?

Im located in Beijing, China and in the market for an Arowana. I know this forum is mainly located in SG. What to look for? Color? Scales? etc..

Any tips are greatly appreciated.

It depends on individual.. 环肥燕瘦,各有千秋。
I will go for body structure and swim posture.
Just that dont go for PLJ and drop eye..
Browse through the forum and you will understand more.
Good luck..

arowana cannot buy skinny wans

competition grade :
First impression/General appearance
Swimming Posture
Body shape (Broad)
Neatness of scales

Optional :
Yi Tiao Long
Thick or thin frame (this has no right or wrong, just what u like)
Length of fins

To avoid (defects)
Bad swimming posture (45 degrees up or down)
Gill curl
sunken stomach
Skinny aros
Big Eyes not in proportion
Uneven/cracked scales

Ultimately, it is going to be impossible or near impossible to choose the perfect aro, especially when they are young
At 6-7 inches, u probably can't see any colour or thick/thin frame
So u got to choose whatever traits that u can see at that size
But defects u definitely can see, so avoid those at all costs, even if it is cheap
