Min. Tank Size
Eels can be a challenge to keep due to their ability to escape aquariums. Keep a tight fitting lid or light diffuser panel on the tank. Be careful when feeding as Eels eyesight is not the best. They may accidentally (or not so accidentally) bite your hand. We recommend the use of feeding tongs instead of using fingers. A bite from an Eel can cause a serious bacterial infection. It is important to clean the wound area well and immediately seek medical help if you see any signs of redness.
Other Common Names
Snowflake Moray Eel, Clooded Moray Eel, Starry Moray Eel, Diamond Backed Eel, Diamondback Eel
The Snowflake Eel is probably one of the best suited eels to be kept in captivity. It easily adjusts to a captive diet and is normally mild-mannered. Is reportedly fish safe though there are incidents of Snowflake Eels consuming smaller fishes. Snowflake eels will eat ornamental shrimps. It has been noted that occasionally a larger specimen may bite a tank mate during feeding time.
Feed a varied diet consisting of large chunks of meaty foods. These foods include krill, raw table shrimp, squid, clam and mussel.
