The Tire Track Eel is a nocturnal predator. They are not true eels as they are an elongated tropical freshwater fish that has numerous spines preceding the dorsal fin. The Tire Track Eel will prefer about 1 teaspoon of salt for every 1 gallon of freshwater. This fish should be kept with other large fish that the eel will not consider as dinner. The Tire Track Eel should be fed bloodworms, shrimp, and pellet foods. Shipped about 3 – 6″
