Three silver arowana (Osteoglossum bicirrhosum) were presented with unstable fractures of the mandibular symphyses. Surgical repair was performed to reduce and stabilize the fractures using interfragmentary wire. The fish returned to light feeding at 2 days and normal feeding at 5 days postsurgery. The wires were removed at 6 wk postsurgery with good alignment of the mandibular symphyses and stable fracture sites. There had been no further complications at the time of writing 18 wk postsurgery.
