  14. hey guys just wanted to know what would be the easiest way to catch and transport my barra hes in a 6x3x2.5 and hes 65cm long, this is the second time ive had to move him, the last time i had to move him i ran into trouble trying to remove him from the tank safely, i tried using a towel last time but was to strong he started stressing out big time and in the end i had to use a landing net which wasnt the smartest idea.
  15. ok so im going to go and buy a 30cm barra(might be bigger!) anyway i have 3 smaller barra's in my 6ft. 1st barra- 16cm approx 2nd barra- 12cm might be bigger 3rd barra- 10 would the 30cm barra eat the small ones? if my 3 smaller barras are going to be eaten i will just transfer them to my other two 4ft tanks. YES I KNOW IT'S A DUMB QUESTION!
  16. Hey guys, I have just gotten my first barra and having done a bit of researching,some sources are saying they do better in a brackish enviroment...Just looking for some opinions,experiences.I am aware they can live in a freshwater set up but if they prefer a brackish enviroment then I would look at setting this up.Also best tank mates for a brackish set up?...would scats be ok with this guy and are there any other big guys that could go in a brackish that are native?....
  17. Hey everyone Been doing some reasearch on these two tank mates for a while and thought I would see what everyones opinions on here were. I have had the Barra for close on two years now hes around 45cm now and always have dreamed of keeping a peackock bass (mono). I started researching (dreaming) a while ago and was actually quite suprised that the majority of the info says it will work. They would be housed in an 8fter and i would up the filtration a bit more. But as for aggression it appears from my research that they would be fine tank mates. What does everyone else think of this or have you done it or it seen it done? Cheers Deeg
  18. Hey everyone how would a large red devil and a large barra go together?
  19. Hey Everyone Had a major F*&k up in the aquarium side of things today that almost cost me my favourite fish. I fed my Barra and jack shrimp feeders like always, but i was not greeted with the usual feeding frenzy. Alarm bells immediately rang, I stuck my hand in the tank and then got an electric shock, which scared the shit out of me....I then switched the power off and turned each powerhead and filter on one by one. I isolated the problem to a faulty powerhead that was giving off an electric shock. I then realised the water was quite warm, checked the temp and the water was sitting on a cool 38 degrees. This was also caused by the faulty powerhead, picked it up out of the water and was so hot I could barely hold onto it. I am now replacing the water slowly and bringing down the temp, hope they all pull through ok. Has anyone else had this happen?
