keep your tank covered as these guys have the tendency to sneak out at night, krill is a good choice for a food, i have one that will eat krill out of my hand, really cool...

I added a 15" cheetah moray to our tank and immediately lost a 3.5" lunare wrasse to this glutton. After trying to add what I thought was an unswallowable Red Snapper of 3.5" length by 2.5" height, I was treated to a viscious side of mother nature. This eel immediately sunk his fangs into this poor fish, coiled himself around like an anaconda and dragged him under to his hiding place to finish off his $60 meal! So far my 5" Koran Angel is doing fine, but I'm still nervous.

I currently have a 16" Fimbriated moray eel. His only other tankmate up until today was a porcupine puffer. I bought a very good sized Black volitan Lionfish and in the first night, within 3 hours of putting the lion in the tank, the Moray ate the lion whole! i am so mad that i can hardly see straight. i just gave my moray a $70 meal! I hope he enjoyed it.

I had success starting my blue ribbon eel on fozen Krill. I made him a rock house with almost no openings so it was dark inside, and I went through the initial adaptation process with no other fish in the tank. Each evening with the tank lights off, I would present the eel with a completely thawed krill on a skewer. After two weeks of waving the krill in front of his nose, he finally ate it. After this, feeding was no problem. I fed him every 2-3 days and he was healthy for several years.

Its best to get them when there babys because they get used to you quicker and they will adapt faster.

I have had my blue ribbon eel for about one year now. For the first few weeks I tried to feed it ghost shrimp with no success. I then tried medium size gold fish, which he gobbled up. I fed him one every 3-5 days. Recently he went about three weeks without eating. I went through a ton of feeder fish, then I tried small feeder fish and now he eats 1-2 fish a day. He is my favorite animal in my 180 reef tank.

my black ribbon, is turning blue, he is eating large 3-4inch gold fish every other day. I started the eel on small feeders. He is the most amazing fish in my tank. if your having problems try hand feeding. it helps at first.
