Indonesian Woman Deep Fries Husband’s Pet Arowana Because He Fails To Clean Tank

We still remember the story of an Indonesian man whose pet Arowana was cooked by his father… 

Well, a similar tragedy struck a little more than a year later, but this time involving a woman who decided to fry her husband’s pet fish because he couldn’t be bothered to clean its tank.

The woman, Mia Kurniawan, shared a video on TikTok of her cooking the fish and described it as an act of protest against her husband.

According to, Mia said she had been telling her husband to clean the Arowana’s tank, but to no avail.

“This is because my husband kept promising to clean the aquarium after I told him to, so I did it myself. However, the fish got sick in the end. I thought it would be delicious if I fry it,” her caption reads. 

In the video, Mia can be seen cleaning the fish before it was scaled, seasoned and fried. 

The TikTok video has since garnered over 6.9 million views, over 189 thousand likes and over 2,000 comments at the time of writing. 

She also clarified in another video that the fish was already dying when she was cleaning the tank, so no animals were harmed in the making of these TikTok videos!
