Barred spiny eel

The Barred spiny eel lives in the benthopelagic, freshwater, brackish environment.

Barred Spiny Eels are jumpers, as are many of their family members. A lid is needed to prevent the fish from dying outside the tank. Filter inlets and outlets should be secured with mosquito nets. More

The barred spiny eel, Macrognathus pancalus Hamilton 1822 (known also as the striped spiny eel) has high food- as well as ornamental value in India and its neighbouring countries. The natural resources of this species are declining due to over exploitation and habitat changes. More
