Zebra Moray Eel (Gymnomuraena zebra) Care
The Zebra Moray Eel, Gymnomuraena zebra, comes from across the Pacific Ocean region. They have a short blunt snout and black and white bands from head to tail. These are one of the most docile moray eels despite the fact that they can grown up to 5 feet in length.
Eels are carnivores and require a diet of fresh fish, clams, and crustaceans. Most will eat prepared frozen foods including brine, mysis, clams, squid, octopus, as well as live prey. They are nocturnal hunters and will eat any fish or invertebrates they can find in an aquarium. Many have very poor eyesight and will easily mistake fingers for food and bite you. They should only be fed every 3 to 4 days.
These eels require an aquarium of at least 125 gallons with plenty of rockwork and fine sand in which they can hide during the day; unlike many others, Zebra Moray Eels will often come out during the day. They must also be kept in a well-sealed tank because they are incredible escape artists and can squeeze through all but the smallest of openings. If housing more than one moray eel, you will need a tank of 250 or more gallons.
