Smile Zebra Moray Eeel in my aquarium

Hi,

I am new to marine aquariums and a fan of Zebra Moray Eeel .I am planning to set up this aquarium for few marine fishes with the eel.Where can i probably order them ? What are the best tank mates with the eel.Can i keep anemone and clown fish as well.

What size tank were you thinking? I'd do at least a 180 as these guys get big, around 4-5 feet. On tankmates I would not do anything small like clowns. Fish like triggers, bigger puffers, groupers, lionfish would make the best tankmates as they're to big or fast to be eaten.

Thanks so much , I was planning 200 gallon tank with lotza hiding places n sand . But if zebra moray is too big I think banded snake eel might be a better choice ! But can a bite from these eels be nasty while feeding?

I think you'd be ok. Just don't add many other fish. That eel has quite the bioload.

The basic care of this fish.

I would recommend a snowflake eel instead of the zebra. They a re ent as problematic and you will likely see them more often than the zebra.

+1. Snowflake eels don't get as large. They will still eat smaller fish.

Morays are pretty filthy eaters, but very cool. Being near sighted can make feeding an adventure. And yes, a bite can be a big thing as it could easily get infected. Especially from a big one.Click image for larger version
