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.

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.

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.

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.

  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.


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.
