The Zebra Moray Eel is an eye-catching and extremely docile species that derives its name from the bold pattern of bars on its body.

The Zebra Moray Eel is an ideal moray for the community fish tank. It poses no threat to its fish tank mates or the aquarist, and is often out and about during the day rather than at night. A 125 gallon or larger aquarium must be provided with crevices for hiding that are large enough to conceal the eel’s entire body.

The Zebra Moray Eel diet should include sizeable portions of meaty foods, fresh fish including clams, squid, scallops, and shrimp
