    Hey guys!

    So I always hear this term Arowana grooming and tanning. Always very curious about it so I reached out to a friend of mine (maybe some of you might know him) who is a veteran in the fish trade industry and an Arowana groomer.

    Did a video that covers all the basics about Arowana tanning and Grooming.

    The results are remarkable! Check it out

    Hey friends! So I'm venturing into a new Singapore hobbyist spotlight series where its my hope to bring more faces to our community and make things more interesting as we get to know one another. This is Zaric and Jarenn, a father and son hobbyist in Singapore that breeds plecos and they also own what is believed to be one of the oldest congicus bichirs in captivity here.

    Here's a look into their fish keeping lives and a breeding room tour as well

    Dear all,
    Today being the first day of the New Year, here's wishing one & all, a Happier & Healthier 2015. May all your dreams and aspirations come true in the New Year!

    This was the very first farm we had visited, right after 8 hours of travelling and two flights later. We will always try our best to bring to you, not so commonly seen Reds here as well as Overseas. Well known for their quality Reds, this was one of the bigger farms among the five we had visited during this Christmas 2014 trip. The farm owner, Mr Pangkawira have even bought the land next to his present farm for his future expansion. Currently, this farm's main export market is China.

    Dear all,
    As stocks of the Red arowanas which we had imported from Indonesian farms had been sold out, we thought we would make good use of the Christmas Holidays to visit Pontianak, Kalimantan again, just so we could visit some farms and top up our Red arowana stocks.

    And so on Christmas Day itself, we had taken an early morning flight from Singapore to Jakarta, arriving at 8.15am so much so that we could catch a 10.15am flight to Pontianak, capital of the West Kalimantan province in Indonesia. Sharing with you all, our 8 hours journey from Singapore to Pontianak, West Kalimantan. Although this 5 days 4 nights trip is indeed a very tiring one, it was nonetheless a very fruitful trip as we had visited 5 different farms and ended up buying quality, hand picked Reds from 4 farms as a result.

    Hi guys, just wanna share my recent study of arowana's scale problems.

    History: I've been keeping arowanas for years, golden ones, and have been experiencing many of the common problems that most amateurs face. Gill curl, drooping eye, chipped scales, etc. Took me quite some time and lots of solid research done to finally find a solution for diminishing scale problems.

    Process of Receding Scales



    It all starts from a little edge abrasion. Whenever the arowana makes a turn, its body will bend, causing the scales to rub against each other. Weak scales will experience abrasions from the edges of neighbouring scales. This causes a "chipped" effect. However, it doesn't happen overnight, it is due to constant abrasion from movements.

    I would like to share my 2 DIY projects on Lake Tanganyika rocky habitat that I had done during the last few years.

    1st DIY - Underwater Cavern Rockwork
    2nd DIY - 3-D Cavern Background


    My 1st DIY - Underwater Cavern Rockwork (3x1.5x1.5)ft tank



    It all began when I had my first frontosa, an imported rare 7-stripe Kigoma frontosa many years ago. Since then, I have always been fascinated with Lake Tanganyika cichlids and its rocky habitat.
    Through the years, I had been collecting many large heavy rocks and travelled island wide to get more and more rocks, yet I couldn’t achieve the desired natural rockscape that is pleasing, firm and safe when they are stacked
    in the tank.
    I had ideas but I wasn’t too sure how it would turn out. Nevertheless the passion of DIY was the driving force to create my own ‘designer rocks’ that would be tall with strong foundation and also I have to come out with a sizeable piece that would be very much lighter than the weight of a similar size natural rock, or else
