Zebra moray eel with sore tail

Hi

My wimple fish chases the tail of my zebra moray eel and pecks it once he's caught up - all great fun I'm sure - the eel's tail now looks super sore. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to force the wimple fish to lose interest in the eel?

Zebra eels are very passive fish and will generally not defend itself. Zebra eels are easily picked on by aggressive fish. Before your eel gets an infection I would suggest removing either the fish causing the problems or the eel.
