Barramundi are genraly placid and only taking notice of fish small enough toe at my question is, is there a small sized predatory Cichlid or other fish apart from Juvenile Oscars that i could keep with my 1inch - 3inch barramundi that will also eat live mosquito fish, Aquatic insects and Small Crustaceans?

A snook? I didnt think anyone would keep one of those in an aquarium, seeing as fisherman often HATE to catch these pesty fish. They are pretty dang cool looking though!
