  • Description
  • The Scissortail Dartfish is a beautiful and elegant dartfish. Scissortail Dartfish have a long body which fades from electric blue at its head to near black in the rear.

    Scissortail Dartfish reach a maximum size of around 5 inches and need to be kept in a tank that is at least 29 gallons in size. Since Scissortail Dartfish are excellent jumpers, it is important that you keep them in a tank with a tight fighting lid with no hole big enough for them to fit through. Also Scissortail Dartfish require a finer substrate for them to burrow in. Having lots of live rock will also help the Scissortail Dartfish feel more comfortable and provides hiding spots if spooked.

    Scissortail Dartfish are reef safe fish and will not bother other fish, inverts of coral. Scissortail Dartfish can be somewhat aggressive to other dartfish though. So either make sure you have a mated pair of Scissortail Dartfish, or you have a larger aquarium if you are going to be keeping multiple pairs of Scissortail Dartfish.

    Scissortail Dartfish are carnivores and need a diet very rich in meaty foods. Foods such as mysis and brine shrimp and very small chunks of fresh seafood will help your Scissortail Dartfish grow and thrive in your tank. Higher quality frozen foods can also be offered to your Scissortail Dartfish.
