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
Fimbriated Moray Eel
The Yellowhead Eel is a fairly hardy fish. Though it is not the largest of the Eels, it does grow to a sizeable length. Because they are messy eaters, be sure you have ample mechanical filtration on their system that is frequently cleaned as their waste will quickly clog any filter pads.
Feed a varied diet consisting of large chunks of meaty foods. These foods include krill, raw table shrimp, squid, clam and mussel.
