Makes a great pet. Just remember what fits in it's 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 it's 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 a fast growing fish in it's first few years, we suggest starting them in a tank around 3ft and even then they will outgrow this in a few years.

My Murray Cod Update Over 3 Years From
I purchased 5 Murray Cod from on 21 November 2012.

Last week I transfered my largest Murray Cod who's name is "Sharky" to a 2000 litre rainwater tank which has old redgum hollows (Aged in water for 3 years).

He's settled in well and is again eating his preferred diet of cooked pieces of prawn. I supplement his diet with all kinds of bugs but he really likes small yabbies.

He is now 450mm long, weighs about 1.8Kg and is 3 years and 61 days old; he has beautiful colouring, he's blemish free, very healthy and happy, especially at feed times. I feed him prawns 5 times a week, on the weekend he and the others fast or are give small snacks such as compost worms.

He interacts with me very well, as he gets older he's becoming quite fear-less.

Thanks livefish for providing me with top quality Murray Cod.

Initially doubtful about the whole interstate delivery of fish but I was very impressed. Great tracking of delivery allowed me to monitor every step of the way. Happy to use this service again anytime.

3 - 5cm Murray Cod
Guys, I purchased 5 of these small Cod 100 days ago on 21 November 2012.

The Cod I received from LF were perfect in every respect and have survived extremely well, they are now about 11cm long and have fat little bellies and are a great little fish because they get to know you quickly.

I fed mine on a diet of frozen adult brine shrimp and very small live compost worms.

I highly recommend and will be a customer for many years to come.

Thankyou livefish for making my first purchase very enjoyable.

Kind regards

I purchased 5 x Murray Cod, 3.5 - 4cm.

They were picked up by the courier from "Livefish - Bundaberg" on Monday 20 Nov 2012 at about 15:30 hrs, they arrived at my suburban address in Sydney on Tuesday 21 Nov 2012 at 10:40AM.

That's only about 19 hours from Bundaberg QLD to Sydney NSW.

"Livefish" packed my 5 x Cod very well and I'm more than happy with their courier (StarTrack Express) who delivered them to my door (To my hands actuallY) :)

The 5 little Cod are in perfect condition, they are vigorous and happy.

Thankyou "" for making my first purchase an extremely wonderful experience.

Kind regards

Cool Fish
I love my little Murray Cod, hes is shy but becoming more confident and is thriving in his 4ft tank. Great fish i was really happy with the livefish delivery system and he came in good nick! One thing is that it has a stripe near its eye, could it be a trout cod?

excellent native display fish
Wonderful large Aussie native predator!

Enjoys his own space and will consume ANY fish small enough to fit in his mouth if you are an ignoramus who puts them in the same tank together...

Great native fish.
Very attractive Australian native, full of personality. Wouldn't recommend keeping it with other fish as it will gradually eat or nip away at the fins of other fish. The previous review by Tubby Ethan is a typical reaction by someone who hasn't researched tankmate compatability thoroughly, and has rightly so, paid the price. Keeping cichlids with natives should be planned carefully, keeping any fish with murray cod should be thought about twice.

A refund because it ate your fish? lol
The cod must have been happy and healthy if it ate your cichlid..
Sounds like you got a deal on the cod..
Why would you want a refund? lol
