The Snowflake Moray Eel (Echidna Nebulosa) also known as the Clouded Moray Eel, is a species of marine fish widespread throughout the Indo-Pacific area from the eastern coast of Africa throughout Micronesia including the Red Sea and Hawaii. The species is also found in the eastern Central Pacific from southern Baja California, Mexico, and from Costa Rica to northern Colombia.
The Snowflake Moray Eel or Clouded Moray Eel reaches a length of 39″ inches but its common size is 20″ inches. In the world of aquaria the Snowflake Moray Eel or Clouded Moray Eel is a very commonly kept saltwater eel. They are very hardy and well-suited to life within an aquarium.
The Snowflake Moray Eel or Clouded Moray Eel requires an aquarium that is larger than 20 gallons (40–50 gallons when full grown) with a tight-fitting lid, as all eels are good at escaping and can fit through surprisingly small holes in aquarium lids. They are carnivores, readily accepting just about any meaty foods, including krill, shrimp, silversides and octopus meat. Unless already acclimated to frozen foods, the Snowflake Moray Eel or Clouded Moray Eel will likely need to be fed with live ghost shrimp when first acquired. Weaning can be accomplished over time. The feeding of freshwater feeder fish (goldfish, rosy reds, etc.) will likely cause liver disease if fed to the eel, so such feeding should be avoided.
