 Just look at that little face... No wonder then, that so many fishkeepers find these little puffers so hard to resist.

Thieves stole 126 baby arowana from an aquatic shop in India.

The three thieves netted the Golden pearl arowana from Ocean World in Kurla, Mumbai. It's thought that these particular fish were targeted because they are considered a lucky charm and are thought to also have health benefits.

The theft was captured on CCTV. The arowana are sold for around £15 while small, but may fetch upwards of £1,000 when fully grown.
