I have a 2ft jeweled moray eel, and for the life of me I can not figure out how to clean this tank. Anytime I try to clean it he’s comes out and tries to bite. (even after being fed) does anybody with experience with eels have any idea on how to clean/vacuum safely.

You have to show him that you are in charge. Let him bite you and then keep cleaning like nothing happened. He will soon realize that you are the alpha and probably stop biting. Now if you were talking about an electric eel I would say just buy a ground probe but I'm sure you already knew that. Good Luck.
