I think many bro also face the same dilemma including myself.
If space permit, get 1 more tank and there you go again.

what is your current tank set up? can consider double tier, only thing sacrifice on filter size but i guess if u use OHF with good media such as those marine pure and biohome+ etc, should be able to keep a slightly higher bioload than using normal media as the considerable increase in space for the BB to grow.

even if decide to sell, its also the question of pricing to let go your beloved aro now that prices have bottomed.

I've been keeping my RTG for 6 years solely in a bare bank. It used to pair up with another RTG until that female died all of a sudden with no tell tale signs.

Bored, I slowly introduced tigers, TFBs, Bagarius and kelah. Then my uncle passed me 5x juvenile arowana (6"), and I just comm all of them together.

I guess you have to see what other fish you are intending to keep, whether it is suitable to live together with your arowana.

What other fish you have in mind to switch? If can comm should be a better choice as I believe you should have emotions tie to the fish after keeping for this long.
