Chain Link Moray Eel

Facts and Information

chainlink moray eel

A close relative of the highly popular Snowflake Moray Eel (E. nebulosa), this species spends its time searching for crustaceans and fishes to feed on.  The teeth in the roof of the mouth are flat and molar-like for crunching up the shells of crabs, shrimps and small lobsters.  The Moray Eels are very popular with hobbyists when small, but soon wear out their welcome as they grow to adults.  They can be quite messy, especially when expelling waste after a weekly feeding.  This increased "bioload" can often disrupt the cycle of nutrients in a closed system, leaving the tank fouled until the bacteria have a chance to "catch up".  Mature eels are generally thick-bodied, well-muscled and very powerful.  The muscles are striated and run longitudinally along the length of the body allowing for lightning fast strikes to capture passing fish or crustaceans.  They are notorious escape artists, squeezing through the smallest of openings, only to end up dried and fuzz-covered on the floor.
