Product Description

Barramundi are a magnificent fish with both elegance and fantastic speed; they are a real talking point & make a very worthwhile addition to the aquarium.

Barramundi require a large sized tank with a slow continuous flow of water with the temperature and hardness remaining fairly constant. They do not mind being in clear or turbid water. They also show a distinct preference for submerged driftwood, rock ledges and other structures, so making sure there is plenty of hides in the aquarium is essential.
