Snakehead Murrel is what we call Haruan/Aruan, which is a smaller species compared to the Giant snakeheads. Other types of snakeheads also exists in our water including dwarf, forest and black snakeheads.

Yep..all have one similarity:protective parents.
Haruan or Toman can also be used for soups for people who have just finished a surgery.
