Oh no! May I ask what the brand was?
yer my salmon tailed catfish in particular has grown huge. it is a 6x2x2 but when my plecos grow up I'll likely re-home him.
this video was taken in daylight and looks a bit better.

nice ive kept bass before, their tasty too, caught a few over the years.
in the mornings, or night you can catch them on surface lures which is pretty cool.

Yea sleepy cod are nocturnal and active at night like my Marble gobys. I've kept Murray cod also but I like barramundi better.

yer 8-10 hours up north from me i once fished at kinchant dam and big sleepy cod were lying around in the shallows and i tried to catch them in the landing net but they were to powerful and broke strait through the net. i caught a barramundi tho at the boat ramp which was pretty cool.

Yea barras are one of my favorite aussy fish. It's amazing how much faster barramundi grow compared to nile perch.

i dont think ill keep murray cod or barramundi again due to their growth rate and final size. ive caught a 97cm barramundi, and a 13 pound murray cod so their not that suitable for captivity. there fish i have now are more suitable long term for my 6x2x2, i also have a small saratoga growing up in my 5ft but im thinking even he'll get to big for the 6ft but maybe the jungle perch and saratoga might get on together once the toga is bigger. ive not sure which is my favourate.

Saratoga can get very large also so I doubt that will last long term in a 6x2x2 either. Just enjoy them why you have them.

jungle perch having a crack.
unfortunately he thought it was a bit big and the fork tailed cat finished him off.
