Asian arowana basic information

Like all Scleropages, Asian arowanas have long bodies; large pectoral fins; dorsal and anal fins located far back on the body; and a much larger caudal fin than that of their South American relative, the silver arowana, Osteoglossum bicirrhosum. Their scales are large and, in some species, metallic colored. The scales have a distinctive network of raised ribs. These mouthbrooding carnivores have paired barbels on the end of the lower jaw.

All Asian arowanas are distinguished from Australian congenerics S. jardinii and S. leichardti by having fewer (21-26) lateral line scales (versus 32-36), longer pectoral and pelvic fins, and a longer anterior snout.
