I'm new to this forum and have a large tank currently with big Peacock Bass and Barra in it. I have another 1000 litre and I hope to set up with some other large predatory fish. I was thinking:
I'm not sure if all these are legal in Australia or how easy they are to source.
Is there anyone who has these or experience with them that could offer some info or point me in the right direction.

That being said, there are plenty of other cool predatory fish readily available such as freshwater rays, Murray cod, other large cichlids and if you're willing to go the extra mile you may be able to source a giant gourami, datnoid or bichir.
Best of luck, Tom

Leis come up frequently, seasonal fish though, so need to wait a few more months.
Haven't seen anything other than huge jardinis for sale of late, shame as they are a gorgeous fish.
Tarpon / Ox Eye herring have come up time to time on lists (more so over east) think a couple hundred bucks can get you one.
Arowana are about, for Asian aros get your wallet out nothing shy of a few thousand.
Silver arowanas are now being bred in South Australia and relatively cheap (think $650 a pop from the wholesaler) - only problem is getting them here as Fisheries have a thing against them - as they do with most exotics haha. Funnily the silver aros where on the Aquarium Industries list recently, so most of the LFS could have go them but I'm sure that none would of tried as quarantine and inspection would of seen them confiscated.
If your after more bass I have 3 large, high quality females I'm looking to sell
