Really they don't need I be fed that much give him a few every three days. I feed mine 3 times a week. One day I feed half of a medium shrimp that I cut up for him. 3/4 of a squid ring, then the 3rd will be one of those or fish. He's a snowflake that's about 9" but a 9" snowflake is the size of a pinky they need to be big big not to fit though the creat.
That happened with my snowflake as well. Use to keep a brick on the tank lid. He finally got strong enough to knock the brick off and committed suicide. Only other fish I had that was this strong and jumped was a fresh water arowana.
I love morays, use to shoot lots of pictures of them in the wild. Here is a spotted moray that lived in Hawaii.
