Orange Spot Eel (Mastacembelus liberiensis)

$54.99

A medium sized species of Spiny Eel known from Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia in West Africa, the Orange Spot or Liberian Eel is found in shallow, muddy rivers and streams throughout lowland tropical areas. In the wild, it spends much of its time buried in muddy or sandy substrate, using its specialized and highly sensitive nose to seek out prey. In the aquarium, they are a hardy species but will do best with plenty of hiding places as they can be shy at first. A slow and deliberate feeder, they can be outcompeted for food by fast moving or aggressive fish so tankmates should be chosen with care. Like all eels, they will use any opportunity to jump or crawl out of a tank so a tight fitting lid is essential.
