Kim Bak Lor ( barramundi )


Kim Bak Lor 'Jin Mu Lu'

Kim bak lor translates into 'Golden Meat Fish' in English. They are only recently kept by aquarists in aquariums. Originally, they are farmed as food fish for seafood restaurants.

Kim Bak Lor grows up to a whooping size and are very powerful swimmers which is why they are a target for sport fisherman. If you even tried fishing one then you will know its speed and strength! It is actually totally not suitable for home aquariums, which it will outgrow. A fish tank restricts its movement and does not allow it to exhibit its natural behavior.
