    Silver arowanas get over 3' long so you'd eventually need a 250+ gallon tank.

    Personally, I wouldn't recommend getting one until you actually have the larger tank. Yes, it can live in the 75 for a while (they do grow quickly), but your plans for a bigger tank may fall through and you'll be stuck with a really big suffering in a really small tank.

    Liveaquaria.com has the Jardini Arowana (Scleropages jardini) and it says that they get to about 2' 4"(not sure how accurate that is). They say min 125 gallons but I'm guessing that it would need just as much space as a 3' Arowana.

    I don't think that 15" for a red arowana is correct.

    Check out this site.

    "Age / Size : 5 years, 60 cm" (23.6")
