  1. A mate of mine is giving me two saratoga that he no longer wants and I don't know what other fish would be okay to put with them or should I put it in the same tank that I have bass and rainbow trout in? Any suggestions would be great ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Hi everyone, I have a 30 cm saratoga lei that is periodically shaking its head or jerking its head every 20-30 minutes. It currently lives with 6 aussie bass (6cm) and an eel tail catfish (12cm). The togas tank mates aren't shaking their but are flashing and there's no sign of fungus. The tank has a thin layer of gravel and a big piece of driftwood and some large red rocks and no plants. My water params and routine are as follows: Ph: 7-7.2 Ammonia:- 0 (API drops) Nitrite:- 0 (API drops) Nitrate:- 10-20 ppm (API drops) Gh:- 90 ppm (5 drops of API test) Kh:-54 ppm (3 drops of API test) Size of tank:- 5x1.5x1.5 ft Temperature °C:- currently at 28 Been running for:- 5-6 months Filtration:-Canister/Sump/Internal Filter/Sponge:- 2 AquaClear 300 (70) (hang on) Feeding:- What food and How often: fed hikari food sticks and koi pellets twice a day and peeled prawns every few days. No live food Recent Medication Treatments: No meds. Did add some macropore in the filters a few days ago to get rid of the tannins leeching from the driftwood Last water change:- 5 days ago 50% Water change every Day/Weekly/Monthly - every week 50% using Prime as my water conditioner. Hope that's enough information. I personally think it could be gill flukes as I haven't treated them for it. Had the saratoga for a bit over a month and the other fish for 2 months. Prior to that, had goldfish in that tank. Just want to make sure before dumping random meds into the tank
  9. How big will a Leichardti grow? How quick is it's growth rate? How many times does it need feeding at 7 centimetres? Will it be ok to feed it 1 pellet a day for 2 weeks? What are some nice small fish that'll go with it? (Preferably from Fitzroy River) Will some large Marron go with it, or will it take advantage of the Marron when moulting? Is a 6 by 1.5 by 1.5 suitable? If not, will it attack the Marron out of the blue, and it get attacked by the Marron ? Thanks in advance!
  10. .Hey guy's, have my saratoga currently with a bit of cloudy eye, This has only happened since he decided to have a moment and jump through my lids a couple weeks back, I just tried to leave it and let it heal alone but didn't seem to work, Lastnight added 40 tablespoons of salt / 4 caps pond strength melafix Any other idea's on how to deal with this ? Anything other than jumping through my lids could be causing this ? Toga is relatively small and only 2ft long so would think young and healthy enough to come back from this with a little treatment.

  14. So in a week or 2, I am getting a baby toga about 6cm, it will be going into a 6x2x2 with a pictus and a Cray, so I am wondering what are some cool additions that will go well. Wanting something on the less expensive side as the Mrs will kill me for spending so much this close to Christmas haha. Also will crushed coral be ok as substrate? Can't find any info about that.
  15. Hi, i recently got a young Saratoga Jardini and am raising him in a 3 foot tank by himself for the moment. I was wondering when i upgrade him to a 6'x2'x2' what tank mates can i put in with him? what are some species i can put with him? Thanks, Billy
  16. We recently bought a baby Saratoga Jardini. he was eating well, Hikari Foodsticks. We put him in a 6x2x2 with some other smaller fish and he was ok for the first week. However he has now stopped eating. He will grab a stick but then spits it out. I wondered if it was a little cool so put heaters in the tank a few days ago but he has not picked up. Water parametres all fine, he looks ok. Never had Saratoga before, could anyone give me any tips please. Many thanks.
  17. Hi i currently have a 25cm saratoga jardini and he is so lade back and non aggresive can live with all fish. I was wondering if i could add a saratoga leicharditi with him and if they would be ok together? Give me your opinions and experiences thanks
  18. This is for sale on one of the FB pages as a Jardini.I think it is a Leichardti. Can anyone verify for me.
  19. How many saratogas can you keep in a 10x2x2? Can you reduce territorial issues if you buy certain qty as juvies and grow them up together? Thank you in advance.

  21. NO Im not looking to export...this is just GENERAL AQUARIUM DISCUSSION I remember reading once how some of the arowana "clique" overseas also collected saratoga...think they sometimes called it a pearl arowana....think its in reference to the jardini and its pearl coloured spots on the scales....just wondering how saratoga are viewed overseas....and what people think about them as a member of the arowana brigade....I think saratoga rock personally and I know one day..I WILL have a saratoga playland...... oh and to spark some more convo.....can/has a saratoga been bred with another arowana(say silver for example) before??? Is it genetically possible?...
  22. Hey guys/girls, Just wondering how a 10-15cm saratoga would go with my texas, festae, red devil,dovii and jag all that size (biggest is the devil at 15cm). Theyre all getting along now they have since i got them when they were juvies, my brother is moving interstate and wants to offload his saratoga to me but i dont wanna take it and it outgrow them and kill everything, ive researched they can grow an inch a month and get pretty angry. Ive never had a saratoga and dont know what to expect..... What do guys think???? Thanks Corey
  23. Hey guys, well I got a 6x2 tank free right now and as thinking of getting a leichardti in there and I wanted a school of neons in the tank too, so wondering if they will be able to coexist together?
  24. I just brought a 10cm Saratoga and was wondering if anyone can tell me how to find out whether it is a jardinii or leichardti.
  25. Interested in getting a Saratoga to go in a pond the pond is around 1000l but heating during winter isn't possible due to location. Would this work? And are there other natives that would be suitable also
