Found in Southeast Asia and Borneo, the Peacock Eel can be differentiated from its close cousin the Spiny Eel by a small "ruffled" area in its pointed snout and larger ocelli spots in the tail. An elongated fish with a flattened tail/dorsalfin/anal fin rounds out the end of the eel and helps to propel it through the water. A night time predator, this eel will enjoy dense plantings and rocky hiding places in which to await its prey. Often, just the snout to the eyes is visible in the sandy substrate. The Peacock Eel likes meaty foods, bloodworms, tubifex worms, plankton and frozen brine shrimp, along with some of the sinking carnivore pellets.
