This is a very aggressive eel that will hunt everything in the tank, especially at night. They get pretty large, about 4 to 5 feet, and should be keep in a very large tank. They should have rock or PVC for cover and hiding places. Tank mates should be very aggressive, like groupers; but not triggers; or it should be left by itself. They should be fed with a feeding stick.
