The Snowflake Eel is one of the most suitable species to keep in the aquariums. It can grow up to 40 inches in an aquarium and is a graceful moray species. The Snowflake Eel has white body blended with yellow and black spots all over it. It generally adapts well to aquarium and is very resistant to diseases. This eel is hardy and also easy to care, therefore it is a very good choice for beginner aquarists. The Snowflake 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 for a crustaceans and bite it. Since the Snowflake Eel is not considered reef safe, it eats crustaceans in your aquarium. Also, might damage the tips of corals while exploring the whole aquarium, they are safe to keep with anemones and gorgonians. Since the Snowflake Eel feed on the small fishes present in the aquarium, this eel should be kept with large aggressive fish such as triggers and puffers. We suggest you to keep few caves and live rocks in the aquarium to provide them with a natural environment. More than one can be kept but only if the caves are present for each of them. The Snowflake Eel is indigenous to the Indo-Pacific Ocean, and from the Red Sea and the east coast of Africa. It is very good in jumping and hence it is advised to keep them in a closed aquarium to prevent them from coming out. Largely a nocturnal feeder, the Snowflake Eel is often visible during the day, even if only when peering out from under or between any decorative rock provided.
