The Skeletor Moray Eel (Echidna xanthospilos), also sometimes known as the Spotted Moray, is a beautiful eel found off the coast of Indonesia, Taiwan and Sri Lanka. They have a black body with white splotches, reaching a maximum size of 24 inches. Like most eels, they are nocturnal by nature, spending most of the day hiding among rock or caves. They should be kept in a tank of at least 120 gallons with heavy filtration, as they are messy eaters. Their diet should consist of fish, such as silversides and crustaceans, such as krill or other frozen foods. They should not be kept with smaller fish, as they may eat them. A tight lid is recommended to help prevent the eel from escaping. 

Very lovely. I thought Skeletor Moray Eel and the damsels were fighting, but it looks like they will seek him out and he will seek them. They seem to play in a way the damsels never did with each other. He stays closer to the bottom and doesn't come up to compete for food. I didn't think he was eating but then I realized my cheto was all but gone. Hungry as an herbivore.
