Asian Arowana scales are large, cycloid, and, in some varieties, metallic-colored, with a distinctive mosaic pattern of raised ribs. The lateral scales are arranged in horizontal rows numbered from the most ventral (first level) to the most dorsal (fifth level), with dorsal scales designated the sixth level.
The Asian Arowana is the most expensive aquarium fish on the planet, fetching tens of thousands of dollars in the pet and black markets.
