The chainlink moray (Echidna catenata) and the banded moray (Echidna polyzona) are relatively common relatives of the snowflake. They're also smaller, crab-eating morays. I find chainlinks are bold and semi-aggressive to other eels, while banded morays are very shy compared to other crab-eaters.What small morays aside from golden dwarfs and snowflakes can I try in my 60 gallon? (3 foot). Also can any of these morays be mixed in a tank this small? I could always get another tank... I also breed mollies in my 90g freshwater (they eat the corydoras eggs within a day so I need to setup another tank for cories now...) so a few weaker fry will probably be thrown in. I currently have a tomato clownfish, ternate damselfish, and a yellow coris wrasse. I may not keep the three fish long term.
New addition, just over a week.How long you had him/her? I heard they need a lot of sand, like a lot a lot.
Yeah certain species of snake eels are more active than others as far as I know. Only time I've seen wild ones were those slinking around seagrass beds during the day. Of course it's harder to find/notice the burrowing species unless you dive deeper.New addition, just over a week.
I need to figure out the sand. I'm upgrading the tank soon as its bigger and more active than what I'd expected. Its currently struggling to dig in my sand so when I upgrade I'll use a much finer sand. However it seems happy to use the under-sand piping I put in for now.
