Tesselata Eel

SKU: AO918Categories: Eel

The Tesselata Moray Eel, originating from Sri Lanka, requires a minimum tank size of 150 gallons due to their larger size. A secure lid is necessary as eels are known for their escaping abilities. Live rock with crevices and passages for shelter is essential for their well-being. This nocturnal predator feeds on small fish and invertebrates at night. They prefer live feeder fish, octopus, and squid but may need to be provoked to eat when first introduced to the aquarium. The Tesselata Eel is reef safe but can be aggressive towards smaller fish and cephalopods. It’s important to be cautious when handling and working in the aquarium as they may bite. Keep the temperature between 72 and 78°F, pH between 8.1-8.4, specific gravity between 1.020-1.025, and dKH between 8-12 for a suitable environment.
