mangrove jack

Recommended Posts

I think so. I have not done it myself, but I know in their juvenile stages they spend some time in total fresh water. Even as they grow they can move from salt to brackish water at will. They have even been stocked into some freshwater impoundments. Just take it steady and I wouldn't think you would have any problems.

Yeah thats him

He was caught down Tallebudgera Creek

Only about 500metres from the bar so Id say virtually full salt

Chcuked him straight into the 10ft would a heap of salt and he sulked for about a week and sat on the bottom wouldnt eat

Then onemornig came in to seehimswimming around sitting at the top waiting for a feed

Been great ever since

Tank is still kept brackish

Peacock Bass love it Just starting to spawn in there

often catch alot of mangrove jack and always wanted 1 for a tank, so i might give it a try, im sorta throwing around the idea to make a large plywood tank DIY style, 3m x 1m x 1.5m spilt into 3 windows so 1x1x1 13-15 mm glass or considering alcrylic, (its good having an uncle in the glass industry :wink: ), ive kept a salt water tank before with whitting - bream - young squire,sweetlip, yellow tail kingfish, and two flathead ( dont tell anyone @@) kept them for about 3-4 months together feed them fresh yabbies/worms which i collect each weekend. i got over them and started focusing on my cichlids so i released them all. only ever lost 1 fish in the tank and it was a mullet of all things it died 1 week after setting it up.

(anybody ever want any mangrove jack let me know :D ) as we catch them all the time, between 40-60 cms
