Gulai sembilang karang

 

Sembilang karang /coral eeltail catfish

Sembilang karang hidup di celahan batu di kawasan persisiran pantai.
To the Malays this eeltail catfish is called ‘coral eeltail catfish’. It dwells among rocks close to the shore.

  • Ia mempunyai corak di bahagian kepala dan jalur dari kepala hingga ke ekor di kedua belah badannya.
    It has a certain kind of pattern on its head and stripes on both sides of its body.
  • Sembilang karang juga mempunyai 3 sengat, iaitu satu di atas dan 2 di sisi. Sembilang yang dijual di pasar walau bagaimanapun telah dibuang sengatnya. This species of eeltail catfish has also 3 venomous spines i.e. 1 dorsal spine and 2 side spines. However those sold in the markets  have their venomous spines removed for customers’ safety sake.

Kantung udara membantu ikan untuk terapung. The air sac or air/swim bladder helps the fish to float.
