The Zebra Eel is named appropriately because of its striking black and white stripes. It is difficult to feed this eel initially in captivity as it refuses food for the first few days that is why it is best to entice them with live shrimps. It should not be kept in groups instead only one eel should be kept. Its natural diet includes smaller fish and invertebrate like crabs and shrimps, and can be fed a varied diet of fresh and frozen meaty foods. Like many eels, the Zebra Eel is sometimes thought to be angry or aggressive, because its mouth is often open, appearing ready to strike. In reality, the eel is simply breathing. The Zebra Eel might bother sessile invertebrates and other corals, that is why it is considered reef safe but with caution. It gets more aggressive around feeding time or when they smell food in the water. Though the Zebra Eel is not venomous, its mouth is full of bacteria and virus, and its bite can easily inflict wounds. It grows over the time and needs a larger aquarium to flourish. The Zebra Eel will be a little more sensitive during the acclimatization period but this is usually not a problem with this very hardy species. The Zebra Eel prefers an environment with many hiding spots and plenty of caves.
