    Shine - How reflective a scale is.
    Crossing - How high a crossing goes 5th level or 6th level.
    Pearl or Pearlies - Develop coloured scales between the 5th level and dorsal fins
    Frame - scale color/intensity either close to the core or outer core - Thin versus thick frame

    Parts of a arowana (Gotten fom Arowana club)

    http://arowanaclub.com/assets/AroParts/ArowanaParts.htm

    Golden Arowana split into 2 category RTG and Gold XB.

    * Classic RTG or Indonesian Gold - Gold rim or scale until 4 level- usually dark top/back.
    * High Back or High Shine (18k RTG, HBRTG, Super Grade RTG, PG, Gold rims or scale which are capable of going 5th level and above, which are often lacking in gold intensity and shine level of a gold crossback. Rarely reaches 6th level close to the tail but can show more specks of gold close to the middle to head area.

    RTG - Red Tail Gold or Red Gold Arowana
    PG - Panda Gold or Panda Gold Special (which is the most often brought up)
    HBRTG - High Back Red Tail Golden

    Gold Arowana
    XB = Cross Back (Golden Arowana or Malaysian Gold or Malayan Bonytongue) - not the "green"
    BMB XB = Bukit Merah (River) Blue
    PG = Panda Gold is a brand of HBRTG
    PHG = Pahang Gold is a high value XB
    EBXB = Electric Blue Crossback (Usually DFI) - blue based XB like a BMB XB
    Golden head, shine, crossing and colour intensity

    Green - Green Arowana
    YT - Yellow Tail Arowana

    How to determine Chili or Blood Red :

    Seems like everybody especially rookie trader of Arowana has misidentified the SuperRed type , especially between Chili and Blood Red.

    I knew there are many line up of names like Ultra Red , Papaya Red , Panda Red and Metal Red and etc. but lets get back to the roots , the anchestor of real SuperRed Aro variety now,
    I . Blood Red ,commonly named GudangGaram Red or MerahDarah Red first in Indonesia back in 1986 , itís a variety of Super Red which identified as follow :
    a. Ussualy bigger than chili Red at same age after more than 6month old
    b. Body , broader dan rounded shaped ,especially at the edge . The eye looks
    smaller, and bigger head compare to ChiliRed , fan (rounded) shape tail and also
    broader too
    c. Colour , bloodred always developt colour faster and reach adult colouration earlier
    than ChiliRed , the rings will be thickened up to fill the whole core scale (outside
    to inside), then reach the full red scale stage , also Bloodred will crossedback the
    rings (6th level) earlier than chiliRed , but remember the rings of Bloodred is very
    ununiform in shape and thickness , somehow it will look very untidy compare to
    uniformed shape rings of ChiliRed

    II. Chili Red , commonly named Marlboro Red or Cabe Red at early years in Indonesia
    a. Ussually smaller (a bit) than BloodRed
    b. Body , slight slimmer (more streamline shaped) , most of the fin looks had narrow edge on the corner , most ChiliRed had longer fin than BloodRed ata average but not always so . Tail is diamond shaped and narrower than BR , its very difficult to determine male or female ChiliRed at premature adult size below 40cm . Also in composition ,Chili Redís eye will looks larger compare to BRís eye due to its smaller head shape
    c. Colour . ChiliRed always developt colour slower than BR , but itís a different breed and type of rings model , Chili will looks very uniformed rings and most of them had slight green core / violet green core . Chili looks very tidy and uniformed rings in harmony with its body shape

    Becareful there are many crossbreed and mutation of SuperRed variety like for example:
    BR&CR crossbreed , BR&BanjarRed crossbreed then the F2 crossed again with SR ,etc
    Always looks for well known reputation trader and farm when choosing aro .

    no single best food but a variety or mix of live and non-live - best for me is fresh market prawns, beefheart, frogs, and superworms .
