aquarium hobby. I only had one "tire track eel," but it didn't work out too well. I had that particular tank packed with aggressive eaters and the bottom-dwellers and scavengers took care of the lower section, as well. That type of scenario was especially bad for them, since these types of eels like to dwell close to the bottom and even burrow into the gravel, at times. Basically, I should have never bought the Tire Track Eel, but they are hard to turn down when you have fish tanks. I'm assuming they do well in less competitive tanks...
I would explain how they got their name, but their appearance should be
self-explanatory. You know, like it has tire tracks imprinted on it?
LOL! They are nocturnal for the most part, and they do prefer live
foods, going by what I've read. Other than that, I don't really know
very much about this eel. I just think they look cool so I posted it
