Saratoga Leichhardti 5-6cm

In Australian Waters, we have 2 main species of Saratoga, the Queensland Saratoga (Scleropages leichardti) and the Gulf Saratoga (Scleropages jardini).  The Queensland Saratoga or Leichardti has a silver-coloured body and lacks pattern on its gill covers.

Larger fish are best kept on their own, ensure the aquarium is covered as they are expert jumpers. Saratoga is an active predators; in the wild, they eat terrestrial insects, small fish, crustaceans and frogs. In the aquarium, they will eat crickets, mealworms,
live fish, Frozen Bloodworms Frozen Brine Shrimp and floating pellets

Saratoga is solitary fish and is very aggressive towards other members of their own species. They can however be kept with large robust species. Ensure that the tank mates are not overly aggressive and large enough not to fit into the Saratoga’s

Good filtration and adequate aquarium maintenance (filter cleans and water changes) are essential as Saratoga are sensitive to water pollutants.
