Channa bipuli (Galaxy Blue Snakehead, Meghalaya Leopard Snakehead)

A smaller species belonging to it's family, this beautiful newly describes species is colourful and enchanting.

This species has unsurprisingly proven to be very hardy and adaptable in captivity, and its small size and relatively tolerant personality has made it a favourite species among fishkeepers.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Wild fish inhabit both still and flowing water habitats, and sometimes occurs in slightly brackish water environments as well.

Like all snakeheads it is a territorial predator, but it will not molest fast-moving or armoured fish more than two-thirds its own size, and can consequently be kept successfully alongside large barbs and characins, kissing gouramis, clown loaches, plecs and so on.

Prefers chunky live foods such as earthworms and river shrimps, but can be weaned onto wet-frozen and fresh alternatives including tilapia fillet, prawns and squid.
