The Tesselata Eel is a large and beautiful eel that is colored in a camouflage array of brown and white that resembles the reflections of light in the water. This combination of colors is used to blend into the reef as both protection and for predation. These gorgeous eels are great for aquariums and are long lived. The Tesselata demands a large aquarium with lots of rockwork it can use to hide its long body. These eels have poor eyesight and while they can be kept with other community fish, it is not recommended; they will fair best in a species only tank. The Tesselata will accept most foods including fish, shrimp, clams, octopus, and silver sides. Your tank should have a secure top and no openings that the eel could climb out through.
