Tire Track Eels

Just was curious what kind of fish get along well with them. How big a tank do they need? Any personal experiences? Thanks guys.

I had one a long time ago. He never really bothered anyone. I had a community tank with tetras and livebearers at the time. They usually hang on the bottom most of time, and will even burrow in the gravel. HTH

They really don't bother any of the other fish. They need plenty of greenery to become active. For example: When I put a couple dense areas of plants in the tank, they started to come out more often during the day. They would actually hang from the greenery. But a majority of the time they will probably burrow. You will definately need a sand substrate. Smooth gravel works also, but they prefer sand.
