September Tropical Fish of the month: Archer Fish

Aquahome Archer Fish

Archer Fish is also known as the Banded Archer Fish and comes from small rivers and streams across Asia. These fish are unique in that they spit water at insects to make them drop to the water as a food source, with reports that they can even spit as far as 5ft away! They have a triangular shaped body that is mainly silver in colour. These fish are brackish type and we can give you plenty advise on these exciting fish in-store and usually always have them in stock.

You will need a good tight fitting aquarium lid as these fish are jumpers! Provide plenty of plants but leave the water surface clear so they can swim at the top of the water. Archer fish need mainly a meaty diet including also some vegetable based foods.
