So you guys know over the past few weeks, I've been talking about a new

Monster fish order that I'm putting in and a lot of these fish are gonna

Go in the 2000 gallon aquarium here problem with this order though one. It's the holiday season meaning

It's difficult to find cargo space on the planes right now - it's

Ridiculously cold out meaning that a lot of these wholesalers are not going to be able to guarantee a live arrival

So one we can't even find place on a plane to put these fish several boxes

-

I'm

Probably gonna end up with a box of dead fish

Which for obvious reasons we don't want any harm coming to fish and second it would just be a waste of money

So I'm going to have to push aside that order

temporarily however something else

Recently came up you guys know that I've been coming to one fish two fish my local fish store here at Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

Oh now. We're away from me. I'm actually in Truro, but you guys know every time I come here I

Can't help

But check out the Asian, Arowana

that he has in stock now you guys always tell me you should get another one or

You should get all three these guys are really expensive

And there's a bit of a problem though multiple arowana in the same aquarium Asian

Arowana in fact can pose a bit of a problem first and foremost if I only added one Asian

Arowana to the aquarium like many of you have been requesting like hey, Joey you should get one of those air one

I just had to in this 2,000 gallon tank chances. Are they're probably just going to fight

There's a chance they won't, but there's a chance they will and with big fish

That are really expensive. You kind of don't want that happening

But what if I added three to the aquarium meaning my existing one plus two well the odds of them fighting?

Lessen what if I add four to the aquarium well the odds of that even lessen even more now

I'm always going to have a couple of torn fins

I'll always have the odd missing scale because they will fight just like all big fish a lot of big fish will fight

However kind of needs to be said that when you look at an Asian

Arowana community aquarium two things are going on a lot of Asian, Arowana

Packed into the tank

And it's typically a smaller aquarium this keeps them closer together and the number of arowana diffuses the I grunted the aggression

with that said you typically see a

picture-perfect moment where the tank looks beautiful

But you don't see everything building up to it or everything before it or after it you know all of the minor details

that's where I

Come in and I bring you along for my hobby every step of the way my hobby at times feels like it's under a microscope

Which isn't a bad thing?

But the same goes people don't like what they don't understand so what I'm going to do is try an attempt at an Asian

Arowana community in this tank we're gonna have eventually four Asian, Arowana and five

freshwater stingrays almost

completely stalking this 2,000 gallon aquarium

Will it work?

Will there be bumps in the grip in the road along the ways where it would be minor fights will it get along perfectly?

I don't know, but nobody's gonna be able to predict that and I'm excited to see what happens

I feel pretty positive about it, and if you guys don't know me by now

If I have a fish, I'm gonna be able to rehouse it

I have multiple big tanks here worst-case scenario. There's no big tanks in the house

I could probably build a really big one and toss some marijuana in there or whatever the case might be let's just

Let's just get these aerial marijuana. Take it take advantage of this opportunity. We'll go from there

You know the interesting thing about these guys is I went live from this store a little while ago on Facebook and Jeff was like

I'll give anybody

$500 off every fish any one of these fish plus free shipping can to the white and nobody took advantage of it

guys I did my best to try to get somebody to get these out of my

eyesight and out of my way before I bought them but

This this is your fault, so let's take a closer look at what we actually have available up top

We have a mer Lian ultimate blood-red Asian, Arowana

Doesn't look that great under the blue lighting however you guys already know

This is the type all ready having the 2000 one problem with this fish

If we take a look at its I right here

It has drop-by on its right side

Watch them, turn notice that he doesn't have it on the left side of him now

Drop-by is an entirely common in Asian, Arowana, but it can happen the weird thing about it is nobody knows

Why it happens in the first place you see it could happen to number of factors one being water quality another being diet?

Maybe we're feeding too many fatty foods and fat deposits

Develop behind the eye and kind of push it out perhaps

We have too many bottom dwellers, or we're offering sinking food in the Asian

Arowana has to look down

Too much and so forth I mean there's so many guesses you could take at this as to why it happens, but Asian

Arowana typically never get drop by and that's a huge benefit to having them silver

Arowana extremely common black arowana it doesn't happen so often, but it can

Australian and giardiniera Juana's it can happen with those

But with Asian air one is typically less common so this concerns me to an extent

I have two options one I could leave him alone in the 2000 and see how he's going to act

perhaps over time it corrects itself

chances are it won't so I'll be forced to either leave it alone and

forever have an Arowana that has that defect or

Wait till he gained some size and can withstand an operation and I can correct it myself

Ultimately though he's a great-looking Asian, Arowana. I'd be happy to have him in my tank my favorite of the three is actually

This Panda cross back Supreme Asian, Arowana now. I've had a panda

Gold before which is very similar to this guy although when it comes to Asian, Arowana

we can see the gold bearing on the side around the

Around the scales here if we count from the bottom one two three four five six six level shine is basically. It's back

Panda Gold's the one I had before only got

Fourth and maybe a little bit of fifth level shine where this guy is going to have a completely cover his back

Makes it a better looking, Arowana in my opinion, but it also increases the price substantially

Ultimately though this is another great Asian, Arowana

Fantastic looking doesn't really have any defects

So he's gonna don't go good in the mm. For sure especially under better lighting

Then we have the Emerald snakeskin arowana below now this guy is going to look pretty dull in comparison to the other two

But this one is the most special of the three why this is the this is an in script Asst

This Arowana was only described in 2012. It's a new species of Asian, Arowana

Absolutely stunning as an adult see what's gonna happen is you can't really see it right now

But it's called its common name as a snake skin

so it's gonna get all kinds of scribble marks and

Designs all throughout its Gill plate as well as its side scales as well

Which we can't see right now because he's just a juvenile still

But as he grows is going to look absolutely amazing

I've never seen one in person besides here, so I'm excited to see what he's gonna look like only defect

We have here as we've looked at his tail, and he's missing half of it. It looks 2p. Growing back successfully

but if it doesn't again

We can trim that off easily. I've shown you guys how I do that before the only operation I'd be concerned with is

The red correcting that drop by it can be done

I am capable of it, but I'd like to see em be a little bit bigger

in order to withstand

you know being

knocked unconscious for a short while and withstanding the medications and whatnot

as opposed to being some small butt

We'll see what happens now just a little disclaimer here

I am buying these and paying for these

But I am getting a really good deal reason being is quite simple Jeff is going to start distributing Asian, Arowana

Canada wide and offer free shipping

Which is amazing?

I'll leave a link to his website in the description below so any of those people in Canada not in the United States unfortunately

Asian Arowana are illegal in the United States, but if you are in Canada, and you are looking for an Asian

Arowana you want to get free shipping

Which is like 120 hundred $40 usually check out his website see what he can get in for you, so

Here's the plan I'm going to I've picked up three buckets or Rubbermaid totes to transport the fish home in

I'm going to drain enough tank water into each one

Maybe fill it about a third of the way

And then net a fish into each bucket now these buckets are

Going to hold the fish in they're not gonna be able to purchase through the bank

It's going to maintain temperature longer as well as it's blacked out, so it's not gonna make the pan

Use a relatively large sized net I don't have a bag big enough to

Net them or let them swim into the bag that is tends to be a lot easier and less stressful on the fish

but this big net

Should work two things I need to be concerned about one is when netting Asian

Arowana a lot of times you can break their tails off it will grow back, but it's almost like a gecko shutting their tail

Second thing is these guys are jumpers. They don't want to be caught and they don't want to be put in containers

So you have to be careful

McDonald now, it's about keeping him in here. This is really difficult work

One thing to get them in the neck

So he's gonna be okay in there just enough water to cover his body

It's a short ride home well about an hour to get home, but there's gonna be in a heated vehicle

So he's gonna be fine in there now two more times now

Let's get the one down-low

Since there's very little room to work around in there

I find that I'm gonna have to scoop them Bend the net in like this so they can't get out leaving a little pouch

To get him out

So far it's working. Well. I'm probably gonna damage their net

So that one was successful he's fine

This

So he's not as happy as the others. I'm gonna give him a little bit more water

But he's okay. He's gonna be fine

So that makes three now the reason why there's only a little bit of water, and there's simple reason

It's so they can't jump or it's more difficult for them to jump

Which is going to come in handy on the travels home? So they're ready to go well. Let's get them home

Okay, we are home. I want to add the Asian, Arowana into the Aquarius

But we can't do so right away the first thing we need to do is acclimate each

Arowana to the temperature of the aquarium and because they are in

Totes a lot to take some water out a cup at a time

Adding it into the tank this could take a half hour so until I match the temperatures of both aquariums

Then we can add them directly into

The mm, but wait a minute you can't just take a fish from one source and add it into your established aquarium

You need to quarantine them put them in a hospital take and monitor them for several weeks

That's the benefit over these Asian

Arowana is they were housed in individual aquariums on standalone filtration no cross-contamination

And they've been like that for months

Basically the quarantine process for me is already over so I can feel safe with adding them directly to the tank

So this is gonna. Take me about a half hour. It's already 5:30 at night

I haven't uploaded this video today today is Thursday you guys are gonna see this in a matter of minutes

I'm gonna have to cut the video off here. I'm gonna edit it. I'll upload what it is

We're gonna make this into a two part

Bonuses I'm going to upload adding the fish to the mm

And seeing how they act in tomorrow's video

So you guys will get a bonus upload which was them isn't really a bonus because I did miss Tuesday's video

And I wanted to say something very specific is

The only time I take a break from holidays or from

Videos is when I'm sick to the point where I simply can't make a video

Or I was getting married I missed a video on there, or it's the holidays

Historically I used to take a week or two off from making videos completely during the Christmas holidays

And this season is not going to be any different although

I am making three videos a week when pretty obviously I was only making one video week

So I'm working three times harder and making these videos and the likelihood of missing one is certainly going to be high with that said

You're getting a video today. You're gonna get one tomorrow, and you're gonna get a very special one on Christmas Eve

Which is this coming Sunday? I'm really excited about that

I think I'll post a teaser photo of exactly what I'm doing on Sunday on my Instagram account

I think I'll post it tomorrow or Saturday, so if you're not following me on Instagram make sure you do all right

I gotta eat, I gotta add clementé these fish

Of course I gotta edit video

It's a busy day guys

And I hope that you guys are also trying to find balance during the holiday season like I'm trying to with my hobby

My channel as well as my family. If not it's not too late to go spend time with your family

Just do your water changes and forget everything. Hope you enjoyed today's video, but you guys join me tomorrow

We're gonna add the fish to the tank
