Hi I need help identifying my new snakehead that I bought other day. I thought he/she was a rainbow snakehead but after spending a lot of time watching him/her I’m sure it’s an another species. Here are some pics:

Cheers

I know nothing about snakehead fish. From trying to educate myself the closest thing I saw is the Ceylon snakehead. Does that seem close? I didn't realize there were so many different species!
Cool looking fish, by the way.

Thanks he does look like a Ceylon however he also looks like a blue Assam it’s hard because some species look so similar. I’ll see what others say

Hopefully it isn't a species that gets bigger than what you planned for.

I hope so to but I’m fairly sure he not as he looks very similar to a lot of dwarf species it’s just identifying which one he is.

Is it a juvenile? Maybe it will be easier as it matures? Did you buy the fish online?
