Joey,

The top pic looks like a barred grunter to me..........Bit of an invasive species which I probably wouldn't have let go.  The second looks like a Spangled Perch.  The spanglies put up a great fight!  They go ok on the chew aswell apparently, although I tend to throw them back.

Cheers
Colin

Agree with Maverick.

Barred Grunter & a Spangled Perch.

Barred Grunter & juvenile Tilapia look very similar when small, both are pest fish. If you get any more stripey fish in the Brisbane River catchment, kill it & don't return it to the water.
