Electric Eel (Electrophorus electricus)

$299.99$379.99

One of the most iconic fish species of the Amazon, the Electric Eel is not a true eel but a knifefish – the only one in its family capable of delivering a powerful electrical shock. In the wild, these fish tend to be found in shallow, slow moving waters with lots of cover in the form of vegetation or fallen branches. Their electrical organ is used as both a defense mechanism against predators and to stun prey items. In the aquarium, electric eels are fairly hardy, but due to their huge adult size and dangerous shock they should only be kept by experienced hobbyists with a dedicated, large aquarium designed around this fish’s special requirements. Larger fish should be treated with extreme caution.
