Found in Southeast Asia and China, the Tire Track can reach a total length of over 28" in the wild but rarely reaches that size in captivity. It prefers a sandy substrate, as the eel may actually burrow into the bottom to hide. It will also prefer dense vegetation and rocky hiding places. The Tire Track has an elongated body with flatten tail and enlarged dorsal and anal fins. The color pattern is a dark brown with light brown circles. As it is named, this pattern resembles a tire track in the mud. While it will tolerate fellow eels, it can live singly with other larger fish. A night forager, the Tire Track prefers meaty foods, small worms, insects, fish, etc. In the home aquarium it can be fed frozen bloodworms, tubifex, plankton and some sinking pellet foods.
