Hitchhiker eel

Here's a not too great pic of the little eel that hitchhiked in on some LR. Strangely enough, the piece of rock ended up in the eel tank after being in a 20g reef for about 6 months. Now I know why I could never keep a peppermint shrimp in there for more than a week. They just kept disappearing 8O .

He's doing just fine...comes out when he's hungry. He stays hidden the rest of the time. I think it's a green moray and I don't have a clue what to do with him. I know he's eventually going to outgrow any tank I have here.

OH MY.

All the large green morays i have seen in aquariums and on tv shows have had solid colorations and yours kind of looks spotted.

Yeah, I noticed that too. I thought maybe it was because he was still so small? I really don't know and I haven't found anything that looks just like him although I haven't really looked very hard yet. Just assuming the worst I guess....
