Xenentodon cancila (Hamilton, 1822), "a Southeast Asian freshwater (rarely: brackish, marine) needlefish. Maximum size in aquaria about 25-30 cm. Wild fish feed primarily on crustaceans, not as commonly supposed small fish. Aquarium diet can be earthworms, river shrimps and insects such as mealworms and small crickets; once settled will take dead fish thrown into the water current. In aquaria generally hardy enough, but nervous. Should be kept in pairs or bigger groups and is peaceful towards fish too big to swallow." @/NealeM. Freshwater; brackish; marine; pH range: 7.0 -- 7.5; dH range: 20 http://www.fishbase.org/Summary/SpeciesSummary.php?id=10124
