The Red Scat (Scatophagus argus arromaculatus) is found in muddy coastal areas and is found only in Sri Lanka, New Guinea, and Australia. They live in estuaries, harbors, around mangroves and in the lower courses of rivers where the waters are brackish to marine in salinity.

There are two color morphs of Scatophagus argus which are both popular with tropical fish keeping enthusiasts. The common Spotted or Green Scat (Scatophagus argus), and the Ruby or Red Scat (Scatophagus argus arromaculatus).

The Red Scat (Scatophagus argus arrowmaculatus) is also known to tropical fish keeping enthusiasts as the Read headed Scat or Ruby Red Scat and during the late 1960s and 70s, Scats were also called the “poor man’s discus.”
