    That'd be my guess too. Is he that fat, or is it a goofy angle??

    Not a tire track eel, not too fat, and only about 8 inches long but can grow to 18 nches.

    After I looked at the full-size image I realized that. In the little pic he looks rather rotund. Very Happy

    Ok, I think I've got him now, but I'll wait and see if anyone else gets it before I try again.

    I'll give you credit but the proper name is Aethiomastacembelus elipsifer. It's your turn to pick a new fish.

    Either way its a nice looking spiney eel. I didn't realize how many varieties there were of them.

    I will try and find something interesting, but in the mean time, someone else throw something out there if they've got something neat.
