Husbandry

(Forsskål, 1775)

Carangoides bajad, also known as the gold-spotted trevally, is found in tropical and subtropical waters of the Indian and western Pacific Ocean from the Red Sea, south to Madagascar, east of Indonesia, the Philippines and the Gulf of Thailand to Okinawa and Japan.

The gold-spotted trevally is usually immediately recognizable because of their intense color. The actual color of the fish is a silvery, almost tinny-looking gray with many small orange to yellow spots on the sides. As shown in the picture, there are also completely yellow colored copies and other color variations of the animals but they can also in a very short time switch back and show their rather drab gray color.

Carangoides bajad adheres mainly near to coastal waters here usually near coral reefs but also on rocky grounds. You can see them both individually and in larger groups.

Aquaristic the animal is already due to the expected final lenght of about 50-55 cm and its feeding behavior rather uninteresting. Unique aquariums and zoos maintain small groups successfully.
