The Spiny Eel

Anyone have a ,zigzag I think it is, spiny eel? I got one recently. And I just love his antics! He's not in the least shy and swims by the glass, sits on the trees (tank plants, lol) and browses for food. At the mo he is about 4in.

Make sure the tank is tightly sealed.
They are escape artists.

Yea he let me know that while being acclimatised in a bowl! He jumped right out. Hopefully no misshaps will occur while his in the tank, the lid has no openings. will post some pics soon.

Ok as far as I cn make out he definitely is a zig zag spiny eel. They can grow up to 7in. Luckily they don't fall under the eating the fish category (as far as I know)! They like to bury themselves in the substrate with their head out. I know when I can't find him his buried! I feed him bloodworms, tablets worms and flakes he eats them all.

He's very cool! I've not seen any Freshwater eels at the stores i've been in.
