Channa pulchra (Peacock Snakehead, Orange-spotted Snakehead)
A fairly small snakehead with a greyish-green body marked with small black speckles and a single row of orange spots along the flank. The pectoral fins are prettily marked with concentric light and dark bands. There is a black spot at the front of the dorsal fin. The anal fin is blue with a black edge.
There are no obvious differences in colouration between males and females.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
This is a hardy but aggressive snakehead not really suitable for community tanks except perhaps with large armoured catfish. Mated pairs can get along reasonably well, but generally this fish is kept on its own.
This Snakehead is a good jumper! Like other snakeheads this fish prefers live foods such as earthworms and crickets but will take chunky seafood and tilapia fillet without too much difficulty.
