EELS

Ok so what's everyone's views on keeping eels. I think the snowflake and blue ribbon look great.

They aren't really eels, but Morays. The snowflake is easy to raise and can get a couple of feet long. Cool fish.

Do some research on the blue ribbon. Almost need to do a tank just for them.

Agreed. Super cool, but extremely difficult to keep alive. Most die of starvation. They are also great escape artists.

I have had both and my blue ribbon was great but my snowflake was about 3 feet long and he ate 2 6 inch lion fish and a blue tang and 2 puffers. I kept him very well fed too he was just extremely aggressive.

Not to butt in, I've heard chain link eels are friendly and don't get real big
