The Barracuda is a saltwater fish that can be found in the temperate and tropical waters. They can be found the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific oceans. The Barracuda has an elongated body, with a pointed snout and large jaws. The size of this fish can range from 30cm to 1m depending on its environment. These fish are carnivorous and feed on small sharks, rays and other fish species. They are known for their speed and agility in the water which makes them excellent predators!
The Barracuda lives in shallow coastal areas such as lagoons, reefs or open ocean waters. Its habitat ranges from 15m-200m deep but they prefer to stay closer to the surface where there is more light and oxygen availability. The temperature of these waters varies depending on its location; in tropical regions it’s around 22 degrees Celsius while in temperate regions it’s around 10 degrees Celsius.
This species is relatively easygoing when kept in captivity but it may be aggressive towards other tankmates if kept alone or if it feels threatened by them (such as during feeding time).
It’s important to provide plenty of hiding places for Barracudas in the aquarium so they can feel secure.
