In general, Arowanas are classified according to their three colors. These would include red, green and silver. The red will be those Arowanas with scales under the shade of red, like the golden Arowana, or the red Arowanas. For the silver color, it will include those Arowanas with dull colors, like the black Arowana. Then, there are the green ones.
Myths have surrounded Arowanas because of their similarity to the dragons of the Chinese. Known as the keeper of good fortune, dragons have been worshipped by so many Asian countries. This is the reason why many love to collect Arowana aquariums for themselves. However, not all Arowanas are lucky for everyone.
The color of the fish will determine if it is lucky or not. According to many mythical literatures, the bright colors signify good luck. Following that trail of thought, all Arowanas under the red Arowana category are lucky. This was proven by so many experiences in Asia, but you do not have the means to prove if those claims are actually true. No wonder the price of the red species of this fish is relatively high as compared to the other type of fishes.
For the famous silver Arowana of South America, the fortune that they can produce, according to myths, is smaller when compared to the good fortune red Arowanas can give. Aside from the dull aura of these colors, the gloom in these hues was associated by the superstitious beings as a hindrance to the total luck Arowanas can bring. This is also the reason why Arowanas of these colors are much cheaper than the red ones.
The third type of Arowanas is the worst in providing fortunes. In fact, as many mysticism books mentioned, green Arowanas provide bad luck to its owners. As of now, no valid study is conducted to prove otherwise, even the claims mentioned for the other two types. However, many are still believing those claims, and the consequences that happen accidentally were instantly associated with the Arowanas.
In case you would want to try the different capacity of Arowanas to help you in your financial problems, please bear in mind that not all myths are true. In fact, most of the time, they are not. If you will invest on Arowanas for the sake of the fortune that it can brought, you may end up frustrated. In those remarks, it would then be helpful to consider Arowanas just as pets or beautiful creatures that enhances the look of your living room.
