Overview

The Garden Eel, also known as Hass's Garden Eel, looks like a colony of seagrass.

The main portion of the Garden eel is usually buried in the sand, and if approached, retreats into the substrate. The Garden Eel should be kept in a 40 gallon or larger aquarium with at least 6 inches of sand, a gentle current, and without aggressive tank mates. Decor should be kept at a minimum. A tight-fitting lid is required to prevent escape.

The Garden Eel diet consists of meaty foods and live foods such as freshwater ghost shrimp or small feeder fish.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 3" to 4" Medium: 4" to 7"
