Geometric Moray Eel

Does anyone have any experience or feedback about the Geometric Moray? The only thing I am sure of is that it is a diurnal eel, and is a beautiful pinkish color. They have one for sale at a LFS. They tell me it is extremely hardy and peaceful (go figure they would say that about a rabid wolverine!)

Anyway, I think it is a beautiful fish and am considering it in the future so thought I would start digging now.

TIA

There are pics and info about them on the web. Just google that common name. Sidera grisea is the scientific name. I have never kept one, but it is a very handsome animal. Eels in general are very hardy fish, easy to care for, for the most part. There are exceptions to the rule like the Ribbon Morey, so I wouldnt know how hardy these particular fish are. Keep diggin for info, you'll find it.

Yeah I have searched and I can find alot of pictures about them. What I was hoping to find is someone that could speak from experience about them in captivity. Also I wanted to see if anyone else had seen one for sale so I could judge if the price of 300.00 was fair.

300 for him? I dont know. I have never seen him before, but considering they want 2000.00 or more for my Eel it may be very fair.
