Very special order coming, very limited numbers. One 12-14 inch fish (tanned), two 9-10 inch fish (tanned) and two 6 inch fish (not tanned).

The tanned fish should arrive showing very strong colour making them ideal to show off immediately. Of course owners will have to continue tanning to keep the red intensity up, or be prepared to wait until fish is fully mature for the red colour to fully set. The tanning will show the adult colouration, however, which is a bonus.

This order is the result of a special request. While I hope to continue ordering from Arokingdom on a regular basis, as always it is subject to demand.

If you have been wanting a special super red (blood or chilli), this is your chance.

Email [email protected] for details.

Money has been wired, order is in process.

Photos/video of fish coming will be uploaded soon!

I have the ability to choose with customers which exact fish you want; the larger sized fish (not the 6 inches) will be put in special tanks and tanned until arrival date. I have not tried this before and I think it will be pretty cool!







More videos to come.

Beautiful looking arowanas. However, Arokingdom's videos can definitely be improved. In a world of 1080 / 4k quality, they need to step up their video quality so we can truly see the definitions of these reds!

This order is done!

Phew, what an odyssey.

First, here is what you do not want to see when you pick up fish - wet boxes! :


This meant that for trans-shipping purposes I had to really think hard and problem solve. Westjet would not allow me to use such boxes. Unfortunately I did not have any other boxes at hand, and so I had to post-pone some shipping, take all the fish home, babysit overnight, dry out and rebuild the boxes (see attached photos), and then re-ship the next day. I suppose my 10+ years of experience in this business pays off in such situations. It is also a good thing I have almost 1000 gallons of tank space at home for use.

The good news is that the water was not due to leaking fish bags, but rather to the use of ice-cubes (!) by the shipper. The shipper tells me this is common practice in the business. Maybe when you are shipping from Singapore to Thailand or the Philippines you need to worry of such things, but not when shipping to Canada. Here heat packs are usually the import add on. :)

In any case, the fish landed fine and are all in the care of their new owners now. Check out a couple of the beauties I babysat:


and


and hopefully in a few years under the expert care of their new owners the fish above will look like:


And so there you have it - the conclusion of another successful order.

Congratulations to all the owners of the "new" fish - you have done well! Good luck to all!
