You're limited. Aro's will eat anything they can fit in their mouth. My 24" silver even ate a 10" Pleco once. Not sure how he found that tasty, but whatever..

Try a couple large cichlids like a fully Jack Dempsey or Frontosa perhaps?

I don't like cichlids I have them before I was thinking of getting senegal.

larger bichirs should be ok

stingrays if you have the footprint

larger spiny eels (fire eel)

rainbow snakehead

Clown Knife

A well fed silver arowana won't last in there for long. Will you upgrade when he gets too big? I would go at least 72 x 24 for a silver. Even that won't be enough for a forever home. I used to keep my 2 4' silvers in a 10' x 5' pond I built in my basement.

Beautiful fish.
