SPINY EEL - 10CM
The Peacock Eel Macrognathus siamensis is a very handsome spiny eel. There can be some variation in its color and patterning, depending on where it originates from. But basically they are light brown in color with a thin pale yellow stripe running from the eye to the base of the tail.
You can readily see where the name 'Peacock' Eel comes from. They will generally have between three to six decorative 'eye spots' adorning the upper rear portion of the body along the base of the dorsal fin. Other common names they are known by are Spot-Finned Spiny Eel, Peacock Spiny Eel, Striped Peacock Eel, and Siamese Spiny Eel.
Although not considered to be true eels, the body shapes of all members of the spiny eel family, Mastacembelidae, are definitely eel-like. The Peacock Eel has an elongated, but rather thick body and a pointed snout. This is an aquarium eel that doesn't get too big, reaching just under a foot (30 cm) in length.
