A wife’s frustration: In the video posted on Oct. 8, TikTok user Mia Kurniawan (@miakurniawan01) is seen scaling and seasoning the arowana fish, which can go for as much as $300,000, before deep-frying it to teach her husband a lesson. 
  • According to AsiaOne, Kurniawan wrote in an accompanying text, “My husband kept promising to clean the aquarium after I told him to. I thought it would be delicious if I fried it.”  
  • “Already cooked and ready to eat,” she declares, showing the cooked fish. She ends the video by making a heart gesture with her thumb and index finger. 
  • In her following TikTok videos created in response to comments from netizens, Kurniawan’s husband forgave her and is looking to buy a new pet arowana.  
All about the fish: The fish Kurniawan fried is an Asian arowana, the world’s most expensive fish, according to NextShark.
  • The Asian arowana, more commonly known as the dragon fish, is a species native to the freshwaters of Southeast Asia. 
  • Its glimmering red and gold scales are believed to bring good luck to many Asian homes. 
  • It is prized as a symbol of wealth and prosperity in countries such as China and Japan. In fact, middle class Chinese men collect them the same way they collect cars. 
  • Asian arowana are entered into fish beauty pageants as well. They can even reportedly undergo cosmetic surgeries such as eye lifts and chin jobs, which cost between $60 to $90. 
  • The special fish cannot be brought to the States as it is protected by the Endangered Species Act
