  • Maquaria ambigua - Golden Perch

    Golden Perch Maquaria ambigua


    Temperature: 10 - 27c
    pH: 6.8 - 8.0
    General Hardness: Moderate
    Max. Size: 76cm
    Realistic Max. Size: 50cm
    Tank Size: 4X2X2+
    Feeding: Carnivore, not fussy but appreciates smaller live foods.
    Temperament: Usually aggressive.

    About: Not a popular aquarium species but another hardy native that soon becomes a very responsive pet. Golden Perch should be kept alone as they are generally quite aggressive toward other species in the confines of an aquarium.

    They are very fast growers and a medium to large tank should be dedicated to them within 12 months. Again you will need a translocation permit for Golden Perch to be imported into WA.

    Do not put your fingers near the gills of Golden Perch, they have very sharp edged gill plates that can cut fingers to the bone. They, like most natives have some serious spines to be avoided when handling.

    Juvie Golden Perch should be no more than $10 each.
