The Chainlink Eel is commonly referred to as the Chainlink Moray Eel or, simply, the Chain Moray Eel. With its whitish-brown body and brown, black, or gray chain markings, it makes a graceful moray species in your tank. The Chainlink Eel is one of the most suitable species to keep in the saltwaterfish aquarium. It can grow up to 28 inches in aquarium and that is why it must be kept in a tank not less than 125 Gallon. It generally adapts well to aquarium and is very resistant to diseases, which makes it a durable eel that an even live for a couple of decades in the home aquarium. This eel is hardy and also easy to care, therefore it is a very good choice for beginner aquarists. The Chainlink Eel takes time to acclimatize in the new environment, but it does well and becomes more active once it gets adapted to the environment. Be careful while putting your hand inside the tank, it might mistaken it with crustaceans and bites it. Since the Chainlink Eel is not at all considered as reef safe, it eats any and all crustacean in your aquarium. Also, might damage the tips of corals while exploring the whole aquarium, else they are safe to keep with anemones and gorgonians. Since the Chainlink Eel feeds over the small fishes present in the aquarium, this eel can be kept with large aggressive fish such as triggers and puffers. We suggest you to keep a few caves and live rocks in the aquarium to provide them with a natural habitat environment. More than one can be kept but only if the caves are present for each of them. It is very good in jumping and hence it is advised to keep them in a closed aquarium to prevent them coming out. Largely a nocturnal feeder, the Chainlink Eel is often visible during the day, even if only when peering out from under or between any decorative rock provided. It thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit and Ph of 8.1-8.4.
