INDO PACIFIC TARPON
Megalops Cyprinoides, or Indo-Pacific Tarpon, is a widely distributed predator found throughout the coastal regions of the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Although they can tolerate full marine conditions, they are more often found in fresh or brackish water habitats close to the coast. Juvenile fish are a uniform silver, but develop a distinctive red and black trim on the tail as they grow. As an open water swimmer and predator growing to a massive adult size, the Indo-Pacific Tarpon is suitable only for the largest home aquariums.
