:I want some toooo! Breeding is supposed to be pretty easy, and they're livebearers. I think all you really need is a pair and they take care of the rest. They like warm, slightly to moderately acidic water with a lot of hiding places, plants, driftwood, ect. They eat fish. They're good escape artists. They're rearfanged, so try not to get bitten. They're not supposed to be dangerous, but you never want to be the guinea pig with that sort of thing. That's all I know. Good luck!

I've tried keeping them before with no luck. Wild caught Tentacled snakes rarely survive longer then 6 months. The few people who have managed to get them to aclimate and thrive do have success with breeding. Captive breds do well and are in high demand. If you plan on getting these snakes get your tank set up now so that it is well established and stable at 6.0. The larger the tank the better. Their husbantry is more like that of a fish then a snake, good luck!
