Should I keep a needlefish in an aquarium? What kind of aquarium should I use?


Answer by  Chacho (21)

If you are a beginner aquarist, than no. However, if you are up for the challenge, I would recommend a long shallow tank with a good cover.

needle fish should not be kept by a novice. The fish tend to be easily stressed. They can nip hands and other fish. They have sharp teeth. These fish should be kept in larger tanks with a good amount of vegitation in it to hide in. They are a stealthy predator.
