The Red Tail Golden is the first of the lower priced Arowana to generate true scale colour. It has a distinct Gold outer scale and in premium fish can develop clearly visible base colour as well.
It colours quickly however, colour rarely reaches the 5th level of scales
Believed to bring luck and wealth this is my recommendation as a first Arowana for those concious of a budget. It does not disappoint in personality or striking beauty, embodying the characteristics of the Asian Arowana.
