Profiles Tropical Arowana

Arowana are a popular aquarium fish that often are seen to have special cultural significance in areas influenced by Chinese culture. The name dragonfish stems from their resemblance to the Chinese dragon. This popularity has had both positive and negative effects on their status as endangered species.
