            Orientation




The Arowana is a big fish that is mostly grown for its exquisite appearance. As such,
manufacturers of aquaria or Arowana tanks have endeavored to produce them in shapes and
forms that will be conducive to that purpose. There are many different places that these
beautiful fishes can be displayed and consequently there is a need for a wide variation of the
shapes and sizes these tanks come in. That said, there is nothing precluding the would-be tank
buyer to have it custom made.

There are generally four types of Arowana tanks available. The first and most common is the
tub type. This is like the normal aquaria you usually see around, only bigger. These come in
rectangular form and regular rectangular proportions. These are the most affordable kinds of
tanks and are generally used by those who are acquiring the fish for the first time, or beginners
in the hobby of growing the Arowana. The next type is quite similar to the tub only slimmer.
This is the horizontal type. These tanks are much wider than they are tall. These are also
slimmer when measure from the front to back. The horizontal type tank is best for rooms that
are bigger and the sides are wider.

The third general classification is the vertical tank. These tanks are, as the name would suggest,
are taller than they are wide. These are better suited for rooms that are smaller and with less
space. These tanks are ideal because the Arowana is not only a big fish it also requires a lot of
space to move around in. Since it would be impractical to put a bug tub in a small room, the
vertical tank is a good way to maximize the space.

The last kind is the liquid tote. These are the tanks that are cylindrical. These tanks are better
used if they are a about two feet or more in diameter especially because of the aforementioned
requirement of the Arowana to have a lot of room to move around in.

The first three of the four general Arowana tank types are generally set near or even against a
wall. The liquid tote type, on the other hand, is the better option if you want to have it away
from the wall, just remember to bolster it with enough foundational support so that it will not
easily topple.
