Introduction: The Channa Golden Cobra, also known as Channa aurantimaculata, is a captivating and enigmatic species of snakehead fish renowned for its striking appearance and unique behaviors. Originating from Southeast Asia, this species has gained popularity among advanced aquarists seeking a fascinating and challenging addition to their aquariums.


  • The Channa Golden Cobra earns its name from its mesmerizing coloration. It features a vibrant golden-yellow body adorned with distinct dark markings resembling the patterns of a cobra.
  • Their elongated bodies and sinuous movements mimic those of a serpent, adding to their mystique.
  • Dorsal and anal fins run almost the entire length of their body, creating a seamless and streamlined appearance.

Behavior and Compatibility:

  • Channa Golden Cobras are solitary and aggressive by nature, making them unsuitable for community tanks.
  • It's advisable to keep them singly or in a large tank with minimal tank mates.
  • They exhibit territorial behaviors and should have ample hiding spots.

Tank Requirements:

  • Provide a spacious aquarium with a secure lid, as these fish are known to be excellent jumpers.
  • Maintain a water temperature between 75°F and 82°F (24°C to 28°C).
  • Aim for a pH level around 6.0 to 7.0 and water hardness between 5 and 12 dGH.
  • Decorate the tank with caves, rocks, and driftwood to create hiding spots and replicate their natural habitat.


  • Channa Golden Cobras are carnivorous predators and readily accept live or frozen foods such as feeder fish, shrimp, and small crustaceans.
  • Offer a varied diet to ensure they receive essential nutrients and maintain their vibrant coloration.

Care and Considerations:

  • These fish are sensitive to poor water quality, so regular water changes and efficient filtration are essential.
  • Monitor their behavior and health, as they can be prone to stress-related issues if not provided with suitable conditions.


  • Breeding Channa Golden Cobras can be challenging due to their solitary nature and territorial behavior.
  • A separate breeding tank with carefully selected mates is usually required.
  • Once successful, the female will lay eggs in a protected area, with both parents guarding the nest.
