Hey guys, looking to set up a sort of planted/driftwood tank for yabbies & wondering what would be able to live with them?

 

I'm guessing fast, top swimming fish.. Any ideas?

 

Cheers

Silver perch for tropical or cold water marron/yabby tanks. Yabbys are useless at catching fish. Big ones might have a bit of luck but still pretty useless.

Yeah as Yabbies and Marron are really herbivores your plants will be a tasty snack. So get super tough plants like the Javafern.

 

Maybe mix some fake ones in with real so the tank looks fully planted and won't look decimated in 6 months time :)

Yep they are a PITA with plants. Pretty good at escaping too though I never really had a problem with it... Except for one time... Didnt end well.
