    Better not . My kois died one by one due to unknown causes after I introduced Aro into the koi pond.

    Many possible variables there. If your arowana and koi grow up together they might coexist fine. Size of tank also a factor. Ultimately I think it depends on the traits of the arowana, some are more aggressive whereas some can coexist without much problem.

    I think you may want to "treat" the arowana first before you put them together. Since Aros are hard scaled fish, they are more resistance to parasite compared to kois, but that doesn't mean Aros are parasite-free. As long as the kois are within the same size group or larger that the Aros, everybody should be fine.
