These are from 6-10 months ago. They are much bigger today. Thought I had recent pics but can’t find right now. The videos in the new tank (different scape) are within the last month…ish.

Black Edge - roughly 22” now
Banded - 18-19” ish….
Snowflake - Solid 20” and getting thick

My Tessalata, his best friend Jerry the cleaner wrasse and Sancho the cleaner shrimp (have to kinda look to find Sancho)
The picture of Jerry completely inside of the Tessalatas mouth will always be my favorite

Years ago, when I lived in Hawaii and you could still catch fish there, I caught a whitemouth moray after becoming obsessed with them the first time I saw one in the wild. He really was my baby until I had to move, was about 2.5 ft and ate from my fingers, never tried to bite, overall a very gentle animal. He ate a mix of whole squid, Alaskan shrimp, and silversides once or twice a week.

He lived with an Abbot's/Stout Moray and a baby Undulated, the undulated bit me more times than I can count haha. He also lived with a peacock grouper, about 8 inches.

I still miss him and hate the guy who I gave him to to hold on to him for me, I don't know what he did with him but he stopped answering my messages.

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.

Here is "45" the Ribbon eel and "PMS" the snowflake eel. They kind of picked their own names. Ribbon went 45days without eating. Snowflake is a Porky Moray $hithead. Probably the most aggressive snowflake eel I have seen!

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.

If you don't care if the species is a crab-eater, grey-head/white-eye morays (Gymnothorax thyrsoideus) max out at about 2 feet in the wild, but they seldom reach 18 inches in captivity.

How long you had him/her? I heard they need a lot of sand, like a lot a lot.
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.

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.

whats the carpet?

Green star polyps, very envasive but easily to control by separating rocks from areas you don't want them on, you can glue a couple of spots on the back wall or wherever to completely cover. There's a cave in that green mound
