Overview

The Tessalata Eel, also known as the Honeycomb Moray Eel or Leopard Eel, has a light colored body and especially attractive, dark honeycomb markings.

Being one of the larger eels, the Tessalata Eel requires a 180 gallon or larger aquarium with numerous rock crevices for hiding and a secure, tight-fitting lid to discourage its escape.

The Tessalata Eel's diet should include sizeable portions of live feeder fish, octopus, and squid. The Tessalate Eel may be kept in a reef aquarium, but will eat smaller fish and cephlapods.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 6" to 10"; Medium: 10" to 18"; Large: 18" to 26" ; Extra Large: over 26"
