    Okkkkkk so If you see below this thread I asked about peacock eels. I know that it would fit in a 29 but I think my LFS does special orders so I may order one of these. Not commonly traded in the aquaria, max length is 15 cm or about 6 inches. Does anyone have any experience with this fish since they are not commonly traded? thank you for any help

    Here Pics

    There seem to be different forms??? IDK?????

    Please help?!!

    Actually,these are the true "zig zag" eels.Often a moniker given to the tire track.Keep everything covered as they can fit through the smallest opening,and you do not want eel jerky on the floor.Will eat small red wigglers(earthworms)right from your hand, eventually.Which is the best way to make sure they get their share of food.A good community inhabitant with small to medium non aggressive cichlids,2 inches or larger tetras or barbs,some small to medium catfish.With plenty of hiding places and maybe some thicker vegetation to curl around,it should be a happy customer.By the way it likes most water quality as long as it is not to salty.

    OKkkkk so it is like a smaller version of a zigzag eel because I know those get long like 2 feet. All the sites say 8-6 inches THank you much for info :) As long as this stays under a foot because that would be the biggest eel i would go (the largest a peacock eel for me!!)
