The Ruby Scat (Scatophagus argus) is a vibrant freshwater fish originating from Southeast Asia, known for its ruby-red coloration on the to and bottom fins and distinct black markings. Reaching up to 15 inches in length, these active swimmers require a spacious aquarium of at least 150 gallons to accommodate their size and behavior. Maintain stable water conditions, alongside strong filtration to keep the water clean and oxygenated. Their omnivorous diet should consist of high-quality flakes or pellets, supplemented with fresh vegetables, live or frozen foods like brine shrimp, and algae wafers to ensure optimal health and coloration.

In terms of temperament, Ruby Scats are generally peaceful but may exhibit territorial behavior, particularly towards their own species. It's advisable to keep them in groups of three or more individuals to disperse aggression. Regular maintenance, including water changes, substrate cleaning, and monitoring of water parameters, is essential for their well-being. With proper care, these captivating fish can thrive in a community aquarium, providing aquarists with years of enjoyment.
