So, it is really hard to imagine what a pet owner will feel if the life of their beloved pet is “accidentally” taken away in such a passive manner.

To those who may be unaware, the Arowana is one of the most popular and expensive pet fish in Indonesia. In Bayu’s case, he bought the fish for IDR800,000 (US$56.70).

And while the buying price is already expensive, Bayu plans to profit from the fish as it grew quite a lot after he took care of it for quite a long time. He plans to sell it later on at the price of IDR2 million (US$141.7).
