That should be fine. If it gets thin just feed a little more. But I would feed an inch a day.

Thank you so much! Very interesting about their sense of smell. Would I have to move my food from the drawer beneath the tank?

I think they only care about frozen foods or fresh foods mines never even showed interest in flake or pellets when I fee the other fish in the tank and I have it sitting outside of the tank. But if you leave a price of shrimp out he will smell it and try and get it.

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.

Good info. So a 14-16in snowflake will be thicker than 1/2 inch egg crate holes?
I have Arowana. So what should I put on my egg crate lid to keep it from being pushed up? Maybe a 4 or 5lb kettlebell? I have a 10-30 kettlebell but I think that would break the egg crate and my fish might get abs when I'm not looking.

Maybe some kind of a fastener or clips to hold the egg crate down. Even an adult snowflake can't break egg crate, so if you can keep it in place he can't get out. A big arowana, as you know, is far stronger. I think one of them could bust thru egg crate. That spotted moray I just showed you was about 3' long and I don't think egg crate would have slowed him down much if he decided he had to get out.

Kewl. But he won't be able to fit through the egg crate holes and wiggle out onto the floor if he's big and fat enough.
