The Threadfin Fish, Alectis indicus, often referred to as the Indian Threadfin is one of the most unique looking aquarium fish out there. It has a skinny body with long filament-like fins. These filaments will often be longer than the entire Threadfin itself. It has a silvery-green body with reflective scales and light green stripes. The Threadfin Fish is really unmatched in appearance in the aquarium trade. Without question the Threadfin Fish would make a great centerpiece to any aquarium.
Caring for the Threadfish Fish requires some previous knowledge. They cannot just be thrown into any tank environment. They are best kept in tanks of at least 125 gallons and should NOT be kept with aggressive fish - especially fin nippers. The Threadfin Fish will eat a carnivorous diet consisting mainly of finely chopped up prepared frozen meaty foods as well as some small live foods - they will also scavenge the live rock. They do best in an aquarium with plenty of free swimming space in the water column as they are fast swimmers and active.
Overall, the Threadfin Fish is an exciting alternative to the typical fish found in a home aquarium. Its long filamentous fins and reflective body make for a fish that is incredibly unique and certain to be a crowd-pleaser.
