Comments: These are actually fish and not what scientists call true eels.  Premium so-called Fire Eels like these are more hardy and more colorful than those from other life fish stores and online fish stores. Click here for more about our Premium Fish.

Origin: Fire Eels are caught wild in Southeast Asia and shipped to live in aquariums throughout the world.

Maximum Size: In aquariums, this Eel often grows to be about 24" long, but they live many years and continue to grow slowly for their entire lives.

Behaviors: They stay at the bottom of the aquarium, or hidden in caves or rocks. You'll mostly see them move around at night, when they feed. But they are notorious for getting out of aquariums, so be sure you have a completely aquarium cover and the cover is tightly fitted.

Compatibility: Some recommended tank mates include any community fish, or even cichlids, if they aren't too aggressive toward the eel. Small fish may be eaten by the eel, so be sure tankmates are bigger than your Eel's mouth. Click here to read more about compatible groups of eels.

Temperature: Fire Eels can live pretty well from about 70 to 80 degrees F., but they're probably most comfortable from about 75 to 78 degrees F. Click here to learn about aquarium temperature, aquarium thermometers, and aquarium heaters.

Feeding: Premium Fish Food Pellets. Click here to learn more about and shop online for premium fish foods.

Water Conditions: This eel can tolerate a wide range of water conditions. Probably a pH of about 7 with moderate hardness is best. Most water in the US seems to be OK, so it's probably best NOT to adjust the pH or the hardness of the water. Here in our facilities the water is hard and the pH is usually about 7.8. We ship them in this water. Click here for a lot more information about aquarium water conditions.

Aquarium Size: These guys can do well living in a 50-gallon aquarium, but of course bigger is better.

Decor: These Eels do not need gravel, and a layer of gravel more than 1/4" thick will usually fill with bits of uneaten food that will contaminate the water. Click here for more about aquarium gravel.

Live Plants are beautiful, improve the water quality. Click here for more about aquarium plants.

Aquarium Filter: Bio-Wheel Filters are highly recommended. A Penguin 300B in an aquarium with 50-gallons is OK. Click here to learn more about aquarium filters.

The addition of Lava Rocks will keep nitrates in the ideal range. Click here to learn more about using Lava Rocks in aquariums.

Life Span: This Eel can live for a few years, maybe many years with excellent care, including excellent water and premium fish foods.

Gender: It's very hard to distinguish males from females. When they are mature, the females usually fill with eggs, look plumper, and can then be distinguished from the males.

Breeding: There aren't many known cases of successfully breeding these Eels. They are known to need plenty of plants for spawning their eggs.

Popularity: These freshwater eels are rather popular.

Names: This species name is Mastacembelus erythrotaenia.

Variations: Since this fish lives across a large region in Southeast Asia, there are probably some variations.
