Overview

The Fire Coral Eel originates from the reefs of South America. It is black in color with stunning golden spots covering the entire body. Like other Moray eels, it has a very thick body and will typically hide in the rocks with its gaping mouth out in plain view.

It requires a 125 gallon or larger aquarium with suitable shelter to conceal itself until it becomes acclimated. In time, it will have its head out in the open, or will lie out in full view. The aquarium must be equipped with a tight-fitting lid to discourage escape. Caution must be taken with this eel, as it will eat just about anything that it can catch and fit into its mouth, including fish and invertebrates.

The Fire Coral Eel's diet consists of live feeder fish, squid, and octopus, and may eat the other fish in the aquarium.
