Feral Cichlids In NSW


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

Does anyone know if there are any feral populations of cichlids in sydney watrways?

I was thinking of doing fishing of a different kind and thought it would be good for the environment too.

Yes those JD look awesome !!!

Found a place in QLD that has wild

Three spot Cichlids (Cichlasoma Trimaculatum)

Victoria Burtons Haplochromine (Haplochromis burtoni)

Wooo fishing trip for me.

Would putting these fish in quarantine be a good option for a few months to make sure they arn't carrying any parasites?

I'm pretty sure those 'wild' trimacs have been recorded since prior to 'flowerhorns' hitting our shores.

However, that is no indication that they are pure, as we had some beasts of sketchy origin getting around for a long time before deliberate/marketed hybridisation.
