    They like full saltwater when adult,but you can put them in a mangrove/esturine setup.They are named scats for there tendency to hang out around drain pipes,notably sewage.They eat just about anything,mainly small roughage,like crustaceans.Water quality is a big concern.Good tankmates are mono's,snappers,smaller brackish eels,archers and stuff like that.

    They are venomous, treat them with caution when handling. I have no idea about behaviors though.
