The Zebra Moray Eel is an eyecatching 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.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small 6" to 10" Medium 10" to 18" Large 18" to 26" X Large 26" to 30"

Customer Testimonials

Jason Pirkey Boynton Beach , FL

I have two Zebra Moray Eels. I have found that as long as you have a fairly good size tank and put food right in front of them, these guys are none aggressive. Sometimes the other fish get freaked out when they eat, so I would stay away from skittish fish. I have had one incident where the Zebra attacked a Humuhumu Triggerfish of mine. This was probably due to mistaken identity when the triggerfish was picking at the shrimp. Just be sure to put the food right in front of the eel and this will become a moot point.
