Don't forget these...

  1. Tank Setup:

    • Provide a spacious tank of at least 75 gallons for adult Silver Barracudas.
    • Use a fine gravel or sand substrate and include open swimming spaces.
  2. Water Parameters:

    • Maintain a temperature between 75-82°F (24-28°C).
    • Keep the pH level around 6.0 to 7.5.
    • Ensure water hardness between 5-15 dGH.
  3. Filtration:

    • Use a powerful filtration system with a strong flow to replicate their natural habitat in fast-flowing waters.
  4. Tank Decor:

    • Include rocks, driftwood, and artificial structures to create hiding spots and break up lines of sight.
    • Live plants can be added, but choose hardy species as Silver Barracudas may uproot them.
  5. Diet:

    • Provide a varied diet of high-quality pellets, frozen or live fish, shrimp, and other protein-rich foods.
    • Feed smaller, frequent meals rather than large portions.
  6. Social Behavior:

    • Silver Barracudas can be aggressive, especially during feeding.
    • Keep them singly or in larger tanks with compatible, similarly-sized mates.
  7. Compatibility:

    • Avoid keeping them with smaller fish that may be viewed as prey.
    • Choose tank mates carefully to prevent aggression.
