The snowflake moray is one of the most common eels found in the reefing hobby due to its relatively ‘small size’ in captivity, but be aware that even though it can be housed in tanks with certain invertebrates such as anemones and corals, it will eat crustaceans such as shrimp, crabs and lobsters.
It’s an easy eel to take care of but a true escape artist in every sense of the word. A tight secured lit above your tank is a must. Their eyesight is poor but their sense of smell is incredible and they have been known for eating small fish such as damsels. Provide them with plenty of caves and crevices to hide in the aquarium.
