Here is the the rarest of the arowana species, the Spotted Australian Arowana (Scleropages leichardti). Waited 6 years and finally able to have it. It's about 13"+. May not be as beautiful as the Asian arowana but for a collector such as myself, looking for one is a lot harder than looking for a black arowana.

Finally able to complete my aro species collection with ease now.

Wow, that's a cool fish to have!

It's got a more salmonoid head than most aros eh? Very nice.

Nice aro!!!
I was thinking it looked aussie.
You're so damn lucky to have 1 of those.
Lol! Please read first post, "Spotted Australian Arowana (Scleropages leichardti)"

There are two species of Aussie aros. One is S. Jardini aka Pearl Aro which can be seen commonly and it's actually the scond common aro next to the silver aro. The other Aussie species is the S. Leichardti which is the topic.

Thanks BTW hopefully I find another one.

We have imported a few over the years, they are seasonal out of Australia. I believe it is around November that they are available. They are a rarer find in North America for sure. Nice find!

I actually waited for those when someone told me that Richmond Big Al's (That was big als back then )were going to import Spotted aros. The day of the arrival came and when I saw them they were NOT S. Leichardti but the common S. Jardini.

Thanks BTW! If you're able to import them let me know and I'll get some. Looking for more of this rare aro.
