To ensure a healthy habitat for the Tire Track Eel, it is important to provide a larger aquarium with a soft substrate. This will help the eel to dig and bury itself properly. Additionally, it is recommended to add two teaspoons of salt per 2-1/2 gallons of water. Furthermore, this species should only be kept with other large fish that it will not try to consume. This will create an environment where the Tire Track Eel can thrive. With the proper care and habitat, this fish can live for up to 10 years.

Unfortunately, the breeding habits of the Tire Track Eel have not been extensively documented.
