The Green Scat is bronze to brown with dark green to black spots covering the entire body. As the Green Scat matures, it takes on a humpback appearance and the spots on the body become darker. The Green 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.

This fish’s body is often silver-green or silver-brown in color and has large black or brownish-red spots.

Things to know when keeping green scats

Scats are extremely peaceful and thrive when kept in large schools of 6 or more fish. Green Scats can however grow up to 10 inches in length when given adequate space and should therefore be raised in fairly large aquariums. These fish are highly active and enjoy aquariums with large open swimming spaces. Green scats are omnivores and will readily accept most kinds of foods like flakes, algae, brine shrimp, lettuce and dried seaweed.

What to know about feeding aquarium fish

In nature, fish eat whenever they are hungry and the food is available. If food sources are plentiful, they will eat several times a day. On the other hand, if food sources are scarce, they might go for days between meals. For this reason, fish are very opportunistic and will eat whenever they have a chance.

Regardless of one or two feedings, the key is to keep each feeding very small. Do Not overfeed your fish. Whenever in doubt, the best practice is to underfeed your fish. There are a lot of health concerns related to overfeeding your fish.
