Description

Silver Scat

Silver Scat's are a very lively brackish/ saltwater tropical fish. They are very lively so need a large tank to swim freely in. Shady places in the aquarium are recommended to make them less skittish however they will eat live plants so you can use plastic plants as an alternative. They will need a good filter as a flow in needed running through the tank.
