The natural habitat of the barcoo grunter includes the low gradient rivers and creeks of the Lake Eyre Catchment. The name, "Jade Perch" comes from the "jade" colour seen along the dorsal area of the fish. · Temperature: 20°C - 28°C. · pH: 6.8 - 7.2 · General Hardness: 50 - 200ppm. The feeding behavior of Jade Perch is normally vigorous to extreme. The fish race towards the end of the pond/tank, where the approaching farmer is about to feed, creating quite a bow wave as they begin to break the surface with their heads. Once they reach the edge of the pond/tank they will extend their entire head from the water in anticipation of a feed. This behavior decreases in intensity as the temperature drops. We are told by growers, that under 18c surface feeding will almost stop. Some farmers have experienced stock losses during winter.
