    true but sad to say human is also greedy they want more .................................................. .................................. hope that its not me alone thinking this way

Seen many below $1,000 at LFS and farms either lower quality or small Aro claiming quality will show soon...too many breeders mass produce with WTT, BTT etc thus quality compromises....not a pro, just my personal view la...haha
    true, when supply get lesser and demand grow it time to see increase. I bought high shine XB before but don't know why kept in black tank the shine will seen to be less shine

    Dear Friends
    Human wants are unsatisfied.Few year back we would imagine at least we should have a RTG then after sometime RTG get boring now Xback then later two Xback and one golden head.So what happen demand increase and supply decrease now price get increased later to increase the supply as a breeder hi-breed are introduced now supply increase and price goes down but the important is QUALITY reduce so we can't find a good quality arowana.Todays situation
    Now when customer ready to pay more for QUALITY GRADE arowana so once again cycle is back breeder start to concentrate on BEST GRADE arowana.At the end of the day price increase or decrease and quality increase or decrease its in the hand of customer (hobbies ) so when every customer think of quality not the quantity automatically the price increase and Arowana always be one of the best fish to have.

    According to me instead of having a comm of low quality 4 to 5 arowana i like to have one best AAA grade arowana.



    Sorry for lots of increase and decrease

    The new market classification of xbacks through what I have observed.
    High shine, No pearlies
    High shine, unevenly sized pearlies
    High shine, small even pearlies, but No gold rims on scales
    High shine, small neat pearlies, dark green horseshoe on scale
    High shine, small even pearlies, totally white with No gold coloration unless with light assistance
    And the list goes on......
    Yes very good observation! I am always thinking to myself, if I have the capital I will buy one each of those you have observe and grow them up. Make a grow up dairy record

    For me the low price now is good for hobbyist like myself as prices for aros are much more affordable. However quality fishes still command a good value.
