The Silver Barred Scat is silver fish with dark stripes covering the entire body. As the Scat matures, it takes on a humpback appearance and the spots on the body become darker.

The Silver Barred Scat requires an roomy aquarium with plenty of plants and hiding places. They do best in brackish water with 3-4 teaspoons of salt per 2-1/2 gallons of water. It is important to choose live plants that thrive in brackish water.

The Red Scat spawns in the saltwater of the ocean, but the difference between the sexes and their breeding habits are unknown. Gradual change from brackish to saltwater will maximize the coloration and the health of the fish as they become older.

The Scat should be fed mainly vegetable based foods with meaty foods offered on occasion. Feed dried seaweed, lettuce, algae, quality flake food and occasionally brine shrimp.
