No, when they are full grown they can jump pretty high and with considerable force. Morays are all muscle. Very cool animals.

I had an aquarium (used as a terrarium) for a snake at one point, it had a tough screen that had a metal frame that clipped down to the edges of the aquarium with a couple metal clips. You could almost lift the tank up by the lid. I would say this would work, it was on a 29 gallon I believe. You could go to petsmart ( I believe I got it there) and see if they have something g like that for the tank you are gonna use.

Sounds like a good thing to check out. Definitely wan an eel, but want don't want to find it on the floor one day. I'm liking the screen idea and possibly doubling up the egg crate as that is what I have on the too now. Many of the eels I've seen for sale are tiny and could get through what I have. I may build a screen frame to go over top of the egg crate and see how that turns out. Thank you!!

Before I read your last part, I was thinking "screen and egg crate combo" too. Great idea, let us know how it turns out!

Not to be a pain, but call them Morays. They have little in common with eels, other than both are fish. Morays are far cooler.

I looked it up and yes they are in the eel category, while the electric eel isn't. My mistake.
