Default Tank Size = Number of Arowanas

Hi Bros.

How many Arowanas would it be advisable to keep in a 10 by 3 by 3 tank with a 9 by 2 by 2 sump?

Thank you.

Cheers mate..!!

9 aros and they will grow big in your big tank.

3ft depth is going to be back breaking for maintenance.
do consider carefully.

Although mine is only 2.5ft deep but its 3 ft wide.
cleaning is already quite tough.
So I bought a 3M mob and clean the interior like mopping the floor...

Hey there Bro..
I am also using somewhat the same tools as you are..
I use a Scotch Brite cleaning pad with accompanying extendable pole to clean my entire tank.

Thank you for your thoughts Bro.
I agree totally as my present tank now is 6 by 3 by 3.
Very tough on the back.

Hi bro,

I am keeping 6 aro (2 red 4 XB) in my 5x2.5x2x5 and they have ample space, so i guess with ur tank dimensions, imo should be looking at 12 or more =)
