From an aquarist point of view there is not much information available about Channa nox, except for that it looks simililar to Channa asiatica. It can be distinguished from C. Asiatica by a lacking pelvic fin.

Channa nox is found in tropical area’s. In contrary to C. Asiatica a continu watertemperature between 24-26 degrees C is required.
