The Silver Arowana (Osteoglossum bicirrhosum) is a popular freshwater fish known for its unique appearance and large size. This fish has a silver body with a long, streamlined shape and large scales. They are known for their ability to jump out of the water to catch prey, so a tight-fitting lid on their tank is necessary. In their natural habitat, they prefer to live in slow-moving rivers and swamps with plenty swimming space.
