I just saw the COOLEST EEL EVER! wow

It was a Dragon Viper Moray Eel. I saw it at a my local fish store in Los Angeles. I asked them about is and they said it was the first they had come across in 2-3 years. They said it was really rare. They bought three, but there's only one left. I couldn't get my eyes of that thing. I would do anything to have a SW tank with one of those in there. Oh yeah, it was on sale for $1000 !!! I've never seen an aquatic animal cost that much.

I have one

The name is Hawiian Dragon Moray, for the record.

Very Kool Fish!

I fell in love with the animal when i saw i picture of one in a Marine Fish Magazine a few years ago, and swore to own one some day. I never kept fish before im my life, so when i walked into my LFS and saw 2 of them swimming around, i made a quick decision and snapped him up, along with a tank, filter, lights, LR, sand and a whole bunch of other stuff the store owner told me i "had to have" .

Anywho, I have had him for a year, he has more than doubled in size, and we Call Him Bruce.

Here is a link to some of my pics.

I payed 500 for him, he was about 8-10 long when i got him, so he was real tiny, but now he is about 2 feet long and fat.

Stresco, you are my hero. lol.

That thing is absolutely beautiful! Do you have any problems or difficulties keeping him in a reeftank? Isn't he a big polluter, eat your inverts, and knock over your corals? What kind of a setup do you have?
