    Yellowtail Spiney Eel, Mastacembelis aculeatus

    One of the coolest(and smallest eels) on the market(here)!

    It would be nice to see a pic out of the bag but I agree with Andy that it is Mastacembelus pancalus

    They are closely related but not the same. At least that’s what my research says. I will try and get some more pics soon. I don’t want to stress him out already, since he’s only been in the tank almost a week.

    Mine vary between 4 and 7 inches roughly , in the same tank there are a few M.zebrinus and about 5 M, species ? this last one seems to be a dwarf , if memory serves me right they came from Thailand ? all my Spineys seem to get along , I never see any bickering !

    How many did you get ?

    I only got one. I may pick up another…I am trying to keep enough room for some Roseline Sharks( Puntius denisonii)

    How long before I can see him eat because I haven’t yet. I use a pvc pipe to direct food right at him so the barbs don’t get his food, but he’s such a slow eater they get it anyways.

    The only food mine seem to eat is Bloodworms or Earthworms full stop !

    Ahh you fancy some Denisoni Barbs , very nice !

    I have six P .chalakudinensis , very similar to Denisoni’s , beautiful fishes , I put some [crappy] pics up a while back !

    Haha, yeah they are my second favorite fish of all time. I’ve had them in the past but they where weak stock and died. Had them for 3 months and absolutely loved them. Here is a pic of my first three a few days before they died.

    I had a couple of Denisoni that died being moved from one of my tanks to another , I might give them a try again , stunning fish !

    My Panaque maccus got a really bad case of Ich and it spread to my Denisoni and Capoeta tetrazona(platinum green var.). Took out everything in the tank except my Schistura cf. balteata.
