****The Zig Zag Eel** Want to learn a little bit about a really interesting fish in the freshwater aquarium hobby? The zig zag eel, there are other species of freshwater eels but these are my two cutie pies. They are not considered real eels but they get their name from their elongated body with a long snout. This fish can reach 35 inches in length in the wild but about 20 inches in captivity. They can live 8-18 years long. These fish are moderately difficult to keep in the aquarium, they require a large tank when full grown and pristine water conditions. They can be very shy when first introducing them to your tank and can be difficult to get to eat for the first few weeks. Mine took about a week before they ate anything. I started off hand feeding them blood worms and they warmed up to me in no time. They are very personable with me and always say hello when I approach the tank. They have very small scales protecting their body so they are prone to fungus and parasites. Zig zag eels are generally nocturnal, they feed on insect larvae, worms, and other aquatic invertebrates. They can be aggressive with their own species so it best to keep them singly unless you have a large enough tank with plenty of hiding spots. They are beautiful and very fun to watch. I absolutely love my two! #savanastips #happyhoundfishsitting
