Peacock spiny Eel /half banded spiney (3 to 5 inch)
Peacock Eels have an elongated body, a pointed snout, with both the dorsal and anal fins extending back to their relatively small caudal fin.
Peacock Eels do best in a well oxygenated 35 gallon or larger tank with soft, to medium hard water.
Since Peacock Eels are more active in a dimly lit aquarium, it’s a good idea to provide them with plenty of floating plants to diffuse the light and live plants for them to wrap themselves around and hang in.
