Hi, Spangled man in not on the forum now and is living in Bullsbrook. I have his phone number and chat with him sometimes. He brought one to me to cook and see how much meat was on it . I was surprised how much there was on it and I think if you were hungry two would be enough. I never noticed any small bones but as we didn't know how long it had been dead we did not eat it. Money box if you are coming this way feel free to drop in. I am always doing something that others say is impossible. Sometimes it works.


Thank you Don. We're heading to Kalgoorlie via Perth sometime next week. If we're diverting a little further south I message you. I doubt I'll ever get to sample our perch. Mrs M won't even let me feed her garden worms to them so I don't think she's going to let me fillet one :naughty:

Well Don we did get as far south as Perth but then headed east through Southern Cross to Coolgardie. We were heading for a birthday party on a gold lease there. By the time I'd finished stuffing about here with the Zeolite contaminated pond and then setting up the fish feeder we were behind schedule.

It took us nearly a month to get back because we came all the back tracks. Fortunately the pond is looking alive again (nice and green) and the spangled perch and yabies all seem full of life. The green is actually on the pond sides and the water is looking pretty good most of the time. Unfortunately the vegetables didn't recover. They didn't die but just stopped growing and have stayed that way.

The automatic fish feeder is a waste of time because the fish rarely take a pallet and when they do I can't be sure the they swallow it. We don't have many moths around the light at night now but we have lots of native bees. The bees are landing in the Japanese money tree or buzzing about close. The fish line up and drag the bees down, they are gone in splash.

Others have said "why bother with Spangled Perch?" Well from my point of view they are native to this region, I can't say this area exactly because there are no permanent streams here. WE have such a harsh climate that we need to have a fish that is capable of handling the extreme hot cold along with the changing water conditions.
