Barracudas are an aggressive fish, which means that they are naturally nocturnal. They are also scavengers, taking in prey – and sometimes their own tail! They are generally nocturnal, but can be found lurking around after dusk. When there is no food around, they will look for other fish to fight. If they see other fish that could be an enemy, they may become aggressive and attack.

Barracuda fish are about four to five inches long, although specimens can grow to eight inches. Their color can range from red to yellow to gray, depending on the habitat and the season. Sometimes these fish are also called yellowtail or black tail barracuda. Most live in freshwater systems, but there are some found in saltwater as well. Of course, they prefer fresh water!

Barracuda love to eat both meat and vegetables, although they are particularly fond of tubers and snails. These include: shrimp, zucchini, potatoes, peppers, corn, peas, onions and eggplant. When barracuda are actively searching for food, they use eyesight to locate their meal. That’s why you might see them eating along the banks of a river or lake. Other foods that are commonly found in a diet of a barracuda include frogs, tadpoles, crayfish and squids.

When it’s time to breed these barracudas, which is usually done during spawning season, they mate in captivity. However, you may find females outside the tank and get the male with the female. The male then fertilize the female with the unfertilized eggs. As soon as the female is able to fry, it loses all the remaining eggs to predators, which usually includes snakes, scavenging birds and fish. Some will even try to steal the eggs from the fry that are in the water to be born later.

These are one of the most popular freshwater game fish because they are so easy to catch, plus they make stunning tank decorations. There are two different types of barracuda, the red and the yellow barracuda. Although some prefer to call their pet barracuda a red barracuda, they are actually just very similar. The difference lies in their colour pattern and the type of scales and patterns that are present on their bodies.
