what would you suggest?

wolfish... the wolfish will own the bottom of your tank and the arowana will dominate the top... and they will most likely not bother each other

Rule of thumb I thought with arros is a 135 gallon is just a starting point.

i thought wolf fish were solitary?

they pretty much would be solitary... they stay at different portions of the tank.. arowana never goes to bottom and the wolfish will pretty much just chill at the bottom

Datnoides or gars can be kept with aros easily. Some have success keeping rays, but when I had my RTG, he took a nice chunk out of the motoro, and he didn't make it. I also had my girlfriend's parrots with the aro, but I hate those things
Think your aro would appreciate a new 8'x2.5' rather than a tankmate.

My experience with wolfish and top dwellers is that they are not a good mix. It is instinctual for a wolfish to be hiding in wait for a fish to swim by. Something about a fish that swims on the top just triggers wolfish to strike. I have heard/seen many a top swimming type fish( arrowanna, redline, gar sp) get torn up pretty bad. IME, all of the fish that I had luck keeping wolfish were larg fish that were low to med level swimmers.

Dats, larger catfish, pleco's, rays, clownknife, pacus', larger cichlids, there are numerous poosibilties. But like said: your tank isn't that big.
