Need Information on Freshwater Flounder
I would like to get some more information on the Freshwater Flounder,
I saw one at the LFS, but they did not know a lot about it. I've scoured
the web, only things I have found were here on Badman's compatiblity
chart, that they were a peaceful fish and scavenger. I would like
to know more, such as max size, stuff like that. If anyone can help
- not sure which one you are talking about..some petshops sell a juvenille
species of a saltwater flounder that lives in freshwater when young(trinectes
maculatus) it get to be about six in..then archirus lineatus is also
called a freshwater flounder..plus there is a blackflounder from newZealand....maybe
a bit more info and we could ID it?
- They called it trinectes masculatus, on the tank but the manager
did not know for sure. Does this one need to be in Salt water when
- Ok..that's the one I thought and as I said these are saltwater juveniles
of the species who do well in freshwater..you will be fine in the
life time of that fish..hope you have a big tank and you can feed
it live brine shrimp I believe.also you can add a standard salting
dose(tbls per 5 gal.) for your tank and It should be fine.
- Thank you. One last question they are not predatory are they?
- nope...you are safe...
