    Hey People
    I have an 8 Inch Albino Oscar named Finn, and i was looking up different sorts of predatory fish and i knew of this fish before but it only caught my attention now.
    It's the Australian native Barramundi and i found a fisheries not to far from were i live that sells large and juvenile Barra and the Oscar and the Barra seem to have the same sort of lifestyle and i was curious if i could keep the Barra and the Oscar together
    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    I don't know anyone who tried this but I think it might work as long as the fish is of similar size. Can't promisa anything though.

    I ended up buying the barramundi and putting him with the oscar the barramundi is slightly smaller then the oscar and they dont even give each other a bad glance they get along great

    In conclusion, a barramundi will not attack an oscar, unless the barramundi can swallow the oscar, i would not keep a barramundi with an oscar if the oscar is to much bigger of course
