Makes a great pet. Just remember what fits in its mouth WILL BE EATEN!!
 
Murray Cod can survive in a wide range of water conditions, but the best water conditions for them are as follows,
 · Temperature: 8°C - 24°C. 
 · pH: 7.0 - 8.0 
 · General Hardness: 50 - 200ppm. 
 
The Murray Cod can grow to over 1 meter and can live for up to 50 years in the wild, they do have a long life span in aquariums if the tank is the right size and water conditions well kept.
 
They are not really compatible with other fish as we say, if it fits in its mouth it is 99% likely to be eaten, but while they are small you can keep them with Golden and Silver Perch, Tandanus Catfish and some Gudgeons. Just remember they do grow fast for the first few years.
 
There is no physical difference between Male and Female Murray Cod, the differences with these are internal.
 
We do think that since these are such fast-growing fish in their first few years, we suggest starting them in a tank around 3ft and even then they will outgrow this in a few years.
