    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.

    The most important factors for grooming arowana are:

    1) Lighting - 8 to10 hours daily of 6500k T5 (daylight)

    2) Environment - clear or white till about 15 inches or midsize. Even for red arowanas. Many years ago, I visited farms in Kalimantan, some farms even groom young red arowanas in white tanks. The reason for this is to the color (not red color) up to the 6th row as soon as possible.
