Unfortunately, I do not have any additional images of these three species. It is a real crapshoot when ordering in mastacembelus from the lake, as you usually get a lot of various forms of intermediate.

Ok. Thank you!

Do you have any advices for the feeding? (How many times per week and what type of food?)

How is the cohabitation between the eels? Are they aggressive between each other?

Does young mastacembelus moorii have a reticulated pattern ? Because, i saw young mastacembelus with big lips and a reticulated pattern like my last picture?
Is thick lip a typical sign for the identification of m. Moorii or some other mastacembelus have it?

Thank you Mark!
