  1. Hey all, Does anyone know of any suppliers that sell larger natives? Around the 15-20cm mark. All that the LFS' I've been to only have fry around 5cm of bass/perch/cod etc and I need something larger to go with my 15cm bass in my 6x2 I'm happy to pay postage etc and I'm based on the Brisbane Northside. If anyone has any leads to anything a bit larger it would greatly appreciated. Regards, Drew
  2. No problem mate, I'll keep my eyes out around then!
  3. Hi all, As the title states in the market for some larger natives, anything along the lines of bass, silver/golden perch, toga, sleepy cod mangrove jack etc. Anything predatory and preferably 15-20cm plus to go into my native 6x2 Preferably around the Northside of Brisbane but can travel. Thanks in advance everyone. Regards, Drew
  4. Yeah I do plan on something that grows large like a bass or some sort of grunter or perch but was chasing something with the slowest growth rate so I can utilise this tank for as long as I possibly can sort of thing. I’ll be able to uprgrade to a 4ft in about 18 months or so. I was originally told bass are quite slow growing in aquariums? i was also after something I could permanently house in a 4x2x2 i did think of mouth almighty but have read that the don’t transport well and are quite hard to come across
  5. Awesome thanks mate! What’s what I’m after a smaller fish for this tank with a big personality. I’ll look into them
  6. Thanks for the help mate! Are these known slow growers?
  7. I don’t mind upgrading to a 4x2 in 12-18 months or so. I just got given this tank so what to utilise it for a while to get back into fish keeping
  8. Hey all! Ive recently just acquired a Aqua one 620t which is a 2ft long by 2ft high tank. Was just after some recommendations of what natives to stock in there that will last a while before having to upgrade tanks? My LFS has aussie bass fingerlings about 1.5cm long and yellowfin bream around 3cm long. I’m well aware the size these fish reach but I’ve read online they both have quite slow growth rates. So would this tank last those fish at those sizes at least 18 months? By which time I will be getting a bigger tank. if not what other carnivorous natives can I stick in such a small tank that I can still feed feeder fish and shrimp too and have the personality that some of the lager natives do? Thanks for any advice or input, it’s greatly appreciated, Drew
  9. Oh ok I got ya. Thanks for the info mate appreciate it! Forever learning on here!
  10. Oh thanks for the head up donny, I'll look into it
