Redtail Barracuda (FRESHWATER)

The Freshwater Barracuda certainly does not look like other Characins. Its large scales have a pretty, silvery-blue to golden iridescent coloring, and it has a black spot at the base of the tail. This is a pretty big fish with an elongated, slender body and a long snout and mouth. The upper jaw is slightly longer than the bottom.



The Gar Characin does best when kept singly, as a pair, or in groups of 4 or more. When young, these fish are found in small groups, but as they age, they will go off more on their own or in pairs. A large tank is needed if you plan to keep multiple fish as they only inhabit the top area of the tank.This fish can also be kept in a community tank, but it is a predator. It will eat anything that can fit in its mouth but is peaceful with fish of like size or larger. 



    • Please check with your state laws regarding which fish are legal to keep before purchasing. Any fish ordered that are not allowed in that state will not be shipped and we will charge a $100 fee before the refund. For more info check our returns and refund section on our website.
