      however as Australian natives, it is legal to purchase stock within Australia

      The IUCN Red List reports Galaxiella nigrostriata as a species which is Lower Risk/near threatened, but needs updating at 19/10/2013:

      It is very important not to release any aquarium specimens into our waterways. Any that are not sold or re-homed/ given away, can often be re-sold to aquarium stores. If they are homed in ponds, care should be taken that they cannot escape in run-off into our waterways. Even if fish are native & local they should not be moved from one waterway to another, as this can transfer disease. If they are not local fish, they can both spread disease and either out-compete or eat local fish, shrimp & plants, causing their demise.
