I never thought something like this would appear but the aquaculture farms in Queensland have bred a platinum coloured barramundi. You gotta be nuts to keep them due to their size but it didn't take long for some weird colour mutation to appear.
 
I've seen variegated Barramundi on youtube,colorful with orange and red and black. Koi -ish.
The best tankmates for a large Barramundi would be tiny 1-2" fish in schools. Big predators don't bother to eat them. Saw an Arowana tank full of tetras..those 2' + fish just ignored them.
