Platinum Arowana (The Most Expensive Fish In The World)

The Platinum Arowana is an extremely rare species of Arowana fish with virtually no coloration on its body. This breed of fish is so valuable that an offer for $80,000 was recently turned down by the owner! Legend states that this fish is supposed to bring good luck, which is a big reason why it is so unbelievably expensive. This unique fish dines on a diet of insects, shrimp, fish, and frogs. They enjoy warm water of 75-82 degrees Fahrenheit. Here is a video showing the Platinum Arowana in action...

If you like the sounds of that fish, but can't afford the price tag, check out the similar Silver Arowana or Osteoglossum bicirrhosum. This is essentially the same fish just not pure white. The Silver Arowana needs to be in large aquarium that is well covered to prevent it from jumping out of the tank. In fact, die hard fish fans have been know to teach their Silver Arowana to jump and eat its prey right out of their fingers. At least a 200 gallon tank is recommended for just one fish, so this is not recommended for the beginner. This fish can grow up to 4 feet in length while in the wild, but a bit smaller in an aquarium so an even larger tank may be needed as it grows.
