Description: (photographed in captivity) This Malaysian Crossback Golden Arowana was photographed in captivity with the permission of its owner. Originating from West Malaysia, this species of arowana is considered to be one of the most prized and expensive ones available in the aquarium trade. Trading of this freshwater fish is illegal in some countries unless they have already been electronically tagged and certified, since it is an endangered species. The Crossback Golden featured here was valued at RM45,000 in 2007.
