Here’s the one I had. We had to rehome him when we moved. He was my second favorite fish (my zebra moray eel was first).

I’m surprised that so many people are talking about them being ick magnets. I never had any issues with mine. He did get popeye at one point but went away on its own pretty quickly. I would describe him as the king of the tank though. Very dominant; no overt aggression, but dominant.

I had him in my 120 gallon tank (48”x30”x19). After owning him I wouldn’t put him in a tank that small again. I’d echo the 6’ minimum like others had mentioned. Another is on my list for my next tank (96”x27”x27”)
How big was yours?
