It might be possible JD lover. but only if there are alot of space for them to hide and get out of the way. Also depends on how the fish are. Some silver arowana might be to aggressive others not so much. My firemouth is calm as can be, barley every chases my acara or baby oscar. What size tank is the arowana going in or in?

Like TFG said, arowana get ginormous so if you have a fully grown one, the firemouths are just going to look like tasty snacks.

FTA:

Arowanas tend to merge in groups of five to eight; any fewer may show an excess of dominance and aggression. Some compatible fish often partnered with this fish are clown knifefish, pacu, oscars, plecostomus, jaguar cichlids, green terrors, gar, siamese tigerfish (datnioides microlepis) and any other semi-aggressive fish that cannot fit in the arowana's mouth.

Australian species are best kept singular in aquaria

These tanks look overstocked to me, but what do I know, at least they look cool




And here is where I found them, some good info here, but the OP on that thread seems like an impulse buyer. Arrowana, pike, and a front???

That is the reason I have not owned and Aro yet. They need a lot of space.
