just FYI guys

The ones on tops a South american Silver Arowana .. had her for the last 2 years .. got her when she was a foot long .... she is now 26 inches .... her feed includes live fish ... mostly goldfish ... as they are slow moving and reduces the risk of the tank breaking or fish getting hurt whilst chasing the buggers around ..also shes eats cockroaches , Lizards , baby mice , spiders ,, beefheart , market prawn , chiken pieces ... shes a regular carnivore ..costs between 18-20K

The one below has just been imported from Singapore ... Asian Arowana .. species callled RTG or red tail golden . shes around 18 inches and should grown another 12 inches in a year . she comes with a microchip in her body and a certificate registered with CITIES - cost me 40 K in singapore with the export cert from AVA - retails in Mumbai for around 1.25 lakhs .anyone interested

Rumor has it that the Shiv sena supremo has a whole lot of them in his house ,,, never seen it but must be AWESOME --

"They good eating Fred?"

Nah, Full of bones. I've caught plenty of saratoga in Australia and absolutely nodoby bothers to eat them. Great fun on surface lures though.

Hi Fred,

nice pics. Tomorrow I'll have a short stop at a Chinese aquarium market. Maybe I'll find some there too. If yes I'll add some more pictures...

Hi,
as promised here now a few photos of Arowana fish. Photos have been made this morning at one of the HANGZHOU aquarium bazaars. The Arowana on this pics are roughly 25 inch big and could go up to 3000-4000 US$. No idea for the flowerhorn which was also a nice big one. The silver ones are smaller and of course much cheaper. Didn't ask therefore but they should even be less as 100$.

Wish I could see the pictures. To avoid contaminating your fish with Salmonella organisms, it is wise not to feed raw meats, especially chicken or pork - these frequently harbor the organism and if eaten by the fish the disease will be passed on. Feeder Gold Fish may contain thiaminase, an enzyme that destroys Vitamin B1 (thiamin). Its suggested to use common Barb, guppies and Rosy red minnows as live food. However feeder guppies are not available anymore. Hey Fred if you know any shop which sells feeder Barb, guppies and Rosy red minnows please PM me I need them feed my Baby Red ear slider turtles.

PS: baby mice ????? from where do you get them???

The original Barramundi Ken...

Nice fish Fred, goes well with lemon and butter. Just clean the buggers and put them in a mixer bones and all with some mayo, then add lemon and butter and salt to taste. Then put the Pate between two slices of bread, trim the edges and chomp on it....yummy!! You may not have the record of having the most expensive fish but you will likely hold the record for the most expensive sandwitch. :lol: :lol:

Oops sorry, dont forget to garnish with parsley and green olives.....pitted.

What are you mate? your recipie reads like one that the indegenious tribes of the amazon are famous for . I did not remember seeing you walk around with a skirt of leaves the last time we met ... if you are then you need some serious help :evil: :evil: :evil:

I can also see that Lemon and butter seems to be your favourite marinade for everything that walks , Crawls , flys or Swims ... pretty one dimensional :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

You need some trancendtial meditation .... go fishing ... chill ... but change the skirt with leaves :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink:

Till next time Bobster ... tight lines and lemon and butter ... not to forget the garnish with parsley and olives :D :D :D

Hi Fred,

Perhaps you should release them in Powai..

2 years time and the water will be spanking good, I expect a Rawas boom as well in Bombay in another couple of years. Serious...

Regards,

Bobby

Hi Bob

What makes you say that there will be a Rawas boom in B'bay in a couple of years?
Its been a couple of years since the Rawas has disappeared. Not only B'bay, but also up to the Maharashtra - Goa border.
If its going to be so , then a lot of people will soon be singing " Happy days are here again " !!

Regards,

Syd

End 2008 mate, all industries move out of Bombay, no more industrial pollutants will be dumped into the rivers and a couple of monsoons should wash out most of the pollutant residue I reckon.

If I am wrong about the time it takes to wash out and if it is going to be the same as on land the we can expect 10 years to clear but because of the continuous flow it should clear up pretty quick. More fish will come in to spawn and the improved water chemistry will assist in more successful spawnings.

Bandra, Manori, Mhad should improve drastically, the next step should be the enforcement of no-netting during the spawning season.

Bobby, Not many industries are left in Mumbai, those that are still present are anyways not chemical or efuleient releasing companies (apart from small garage industries).

Methi project should improve the present pathetic condition of the river, but I am sure you must have seen the plastic chocked mangroves in Mhad, Manori area and do you think that would get washed in few years time??

Looking at what is left not only just closure of industries but a complete ban on polythene bags, ban on netting during spawning season and most importantly proper waste management and only then we could hope to see some improvement.

.


Santosh, the plastic bags are a serious problem, so are the plastic bottles and fishing line left behind by anglers.

Just last night I was thinking about this and wanted to make a separate post on this subject so I will do that. I had brought up the plastic bag and bottle issue previously on IA however I am sad to say that it is not really followed by people inluding by some on this very forum.

We need to wake up, be responsible and not be so lazy first before talking about the uneducated masses that litter.
