Freshwater Barracuda (Ctenolucius hujeta)
Other common names for this fish: Rocket Gar, Hujeta Gar, Gar Characin, Slant Nosed Gar, South American Freshwater Needlefish.
Size is currently about 2-3 inches.
These fish do well in pairs or groups and tend to dwell on the upper levels of the tank. Be sure to house them with fish no smaller than them as they will inevitably become eaten by the Gar.
A well secured cover or lid is required as they can jump. They aren't brackish water fish though a tad bit of salt will be good for them.
Short and sweet, some things were great and others weren't, bottom line my fish is in the tank and revived compared to the lethargic belly up and pale as a ghost state he came to me as. The heating pad wasn't activated prior to shipment because I shook it and squished it and it is warm now as opposed to ice cold, literally because there is snow on my lawn currently, and I checked to see if it was activated and it activated post shipment. I'm still happy though so 3 stars sounds good to me, I will be ordering again one day!
