Coal Grunter and Australian Bass

Recommended Posts

Depends on the individual fish - there is no set yes/no answer but generally if they are grown up together and the pond is set up properly you have a good chance. Despite the common myth to the contrary - Coal Grunters are a schooling fish - keeping one by itself is not ideal

To put it simply - there is no way of knowing. There is always risk when adding other large territorial natives to existing ones. Bass are not the most aggressive fish generally - however it comes down to the individual fish. No matter which way you ask the question the answer wont be known until you try it as it will depend entirely on the individual fish selected. As an example - Barred Grunters are often regarded as hyper-aggressive. I have an adult Barred in with Rainbows, Scats, Coals, Spangled Gudgeon etc without issue. This only works due to the set up I have AND importantly the individual fish being docile. You could try to do this same mix with a different Barred Grunter and it could be chaos. If you're worried about aggression just have the one territorial fish in there. Otherwise it is always going to be an educated gamble.
