Yellow Head Moray Eel (Gymnothorax fimbriatus) Care
The Yellow Head Moray Eel, Gymnothorax fimbriatus, also known as the Banded Moray Eel, is a beautifully patterned species of moray found in the Indo-Pacific regions.
The eel has a bright yellow head, with black and white bands around the length of its body. The Yellow Head Moray is an eye-catching addition to any tank. Eels must be kept with caution in tanks with small fish or invertebrates as the Yellow Head Eel is aggressive and will feed on smaller tank mates. Eels also have a knack for escaping aquariums so be sure that you have an aquarium lid that is securely attached so the eel cannot jump.
The Yellow Head Moray feeds on live food or frozen meaty foods. Eels have poor eyesight so be cautious when feeding as it may nibble on your hand. Feeding tongs are recommended. If cared for properly, and fitted with appropriate tank mates, the Yellow Head Moray Eel can be an exquisite centerpiece for a tank.
