I picked up a juvenile banded eel today - he's about 16" or so. I added him into my 55 gallon FOWLR, and will eventually move him into my 125 once he's a bit bigger - just afraid he might get picked on a bit, as the Green-Spotted Puffer has already been bothering him some in the 55. The rock in that tank is pretty solid - more boulders, rather than porous reef rock. But, I've got good filtration and a decent skimmer, so I used it. Not a good set up for an eel to hide, though. Can I maybe throw in a decorated PVC pipe for him to hide in? Will he use it, in your experience? I feel bad for the little guy. Thanks for any insight!
My friend purchased some live rock and got a surprising hitchhiker. It's a small 6" eel, definitely a moray. Dark brown with oblong white spots. Already eating mysis. The shop didn't have any listings for eels on any of the tanks. Does anyone have any idea of what it could be?
