Hey all,

Just wondering if anyone here has kept or is currently keeping any yellowfin bream in aquariums?

I know there really timid and skittish in the wild but just wondering what behaviours they have in a tank scenario?

Weather they become interactive with their owners like other natives etc...

And what people feed them, and are they available in the aquarium trade?

Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks, andrew

They can be EXTREMELY aggressive in tanks. Some individuals can be like Targetfish just really nasty fish. Others seem to be ok. Tankmates would ahve to be robust.

I think thats all brackish fish hey.

99% are reasonable and 1% of their population is just an aggro nasty jerk.

Even fish like scats, monos and archers....... heck even mollies produce the odd monster!

I found Bream to be absolute pigs.

Doubled the amount of food I needed to feed tanks.

If its totally freshwater and you want an interactive chilled fish, barcoo grunter (jade perch) can be a cool pet.

Sorry to dig up an older post but what pellet do people feed yellowfin bream and what methods did people use to wean them onto pellet, or did they just snap them up?

Was thinking if using massivore or sinking carnivore pellets by hikari.

Any helps appriciated, Andrew :)
