Many have tried Deegsta, apparently they don't take to pellets and keeping live feed up to them is nye on impossible. Do a search and see the previous discussion. I never say can't, but I gather there is a nack to success on this one.

found this...

In December 2010, NSW DPI listed redfin perch as a Class 1 noxious fish species. This listing recognises the threat that this species causes to native fish populations, and prohibits live possession and sale of the species. For more information on the noxious listing of redfin click on the link below.

Will be looking for some reddie fingerlings when I get home next week. I want to try them in the 200L aquarium in the shed to see how they feed etc.
I know a bloke who will know where I can find some :wink:

Can't remember anywhere in particular where they are, I haven't been fresh water fishing in a while.. From what I remember of people trying them on the forum, pretty much everyone gave up on them...

My father used to fish for them in the Warren River back in the early/mid 60's. When he seen my set up here he asked if I could grow Red fin Perch in as they are pretty good to eat. I did a little hunting around but could not find much info on them.
