Our Pictures

This website has lots of pictures of the fish that we offer for sale. Will the fish you get look like the fish in our pictures? No! This is like buying a kitten or a puppy, that will change as it grows and matures.

Click here to read more about our fish.

We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to ship. Not so small that they will not do well when shipped. Yet not so big that they will have trouble adjusting to a new home.

The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the ones we ship that we raised up, and you can too!

We usually do not get advance notice, so we can't supply you with any more information, and it will do no good to email us and ask us, when we'll have it back in stock.

Comments
Scats are brackish water fish. They can adapt to living in either freshwater or saltwater but do best in water with about 1-Tablespoon of aquarium salt per 5-gallons of aquarium water.

Scats are very energetic, mildly aggressive, and have huge appetites. So feed them often with live and frozen foods.

   
Silver Scat like this one for sale at AquariumFish .net, a retail Tropical Fish dealer.   Here is a large 5" Silver Scat. The Silver Scats for sale at our online Tropical Fish store are usually smaller than this one.

Click here for more about buying a Scat from us. Scats are brackish water fish and do best with aquarium salt in their water.

   
This picture above shows a Silver Scat about 5" long. Scats are brackish water fish and are active, hardy, and mild tempered.

They do well in most aquariums and are compatible with most fish that are close to their size and can tolerate about 1-Tablespoon of aquarium salt per each 5-gallons of water.

Note: apparently there is debate whether or not the Ruby Scat is the same species or a subspecies of Scatophagus argus.  
   

Appropriate Home
Eventually a large aquarium with at least 50-gallons of water and probably a much larger aquarium, an exterior power filter with a BIO-Wheel, a maximum of 1/4-inch of gravel, an aquarium heater adjusted to keep the water between 78 and 82-degrees F., and at least 1-Tablespoon of aquarium salt per each 5-gallons of aquarium water.

Click here for more about warm water aquariums.

   

Recommended Diet
When hungry Scats may eat floating flake food for Tropical Fish, which is available in most stores that sell pet fish.

Scats will usually eat freeze dried blood worms, which are actually mosquito larvae. But Scats prefer freeze dried shrimps and krill.

Perhaps best of all Scats relish live or frozen brine shrimp.
 
You should try to feed Scats some greens such as spinach and lettuce, but be sure to quickly remove uneaten food, so it won't spoil and pollute the water.

Huge Green Scats about 18" long have been seen to rip heads of cabbage apart.

Click here for more about feeding fish.

   
  This picture shows a Green Scat about 3.5" long.  Scats enjoy the company of other Scats.

So its best to keep a group of Scats, and you'll see that they spend most of their time together.

   

Compatibility
Scats enjoy each others company. Keep a group of at least 3 together. Good tank mates: Archer Fish, Monos, Puffers, White Tip Shark Cats, Silver Needle Noses, and the Fan Dancer Goby.

Gallery of Scat Pictures
   
 
   
Just above are two pictures taken by us in one of our aquariums of the same young Silver Scat, Scatophagus multifasciatus.

This fish was about 2" long at the time. Very energetic with a huge appetite for premium food.

The same Silver Scat a few months later, when it had grown much larger.
   
Size and Lifespan
Silver Scats, Scatophagus tetracanthus, will grow to 5" and bigger in aquariums and can live for several years.

Green Scats, Scatophagus argus, are rarely bigger than 6" in aquariums but have been seen 18" and larger. They live for several years, probably 6 to 10 years.
