Moray in a 52 gallon?
What is your opinion on keeping a moray in a 52 gallon tank for several months while I clear up my 110 gallon tank? I'm looking at a 20" Honeycomb Moray, just incase your wondering.
Thanks for the input!
On a temporary basis, with proper care, I don't see a problem at all.
Well, I just took delivery of my 10 inch long Yellow Edge Moray on Tuesday that came from the diver's den on liveaquaria.com. (sorry if im not supposed to name website here....). It appears healthy and seems like it has not been starved. So far, it has aclimated well to my tank. I am going to get some coral to put in the tank with him. I only have compact flourescents though so it'll be rather difficult to find compatible coral. I am going to get a new larger tank (probably about 10 feet long by 4 feet wide and 4 feet tall) that I'm going to transfer oops gotta go; be back in a bit
So as I was saying: I am going to transfer all my fish from my 110 gallon tank to my new big reef tank and I will put this moray either into the 110 or maybe even into the reef. It all depends on how agressive he is/becomes.
sounds fine to me. I got a 27" yellowmouth moray in a 30gal rubbermaid tub right now and he's doing fine.
But I do hope that you realize that the tess will grow, or could grow larger then 5-6' and is a very powerful animal who in time with 3-5 lbs LR`s, be like playing, bing-bong with them. also, the lid would have to be strongly secure to keep the animal inside its tank.
Another thing be, a 110 for this eel, is not a good idea, it needs a far much larger tank, in order to have places to move around in.
That is Ping-Pong rather :oops:
a 4 foot tall tank? are you sure about this?
if your going to want to keep corals in this your going to need 400watt if not 1000watt halides
I might be ignorant.

Is that what your talking about? is it acrylic? Cause if it is thats a good $11,970.00 Not including Lighting and the thousand pounds of gravel you need. Plus re-inforcing your House to hold up that weight. And the filtration is going to be INSANE.
If you get that and can get it going. invite me over cause id love to go scuba diving :P
hes talking about saltwater suicide, so it would be 800 lbs of live rock which is $2.50-10 a pound.
a good 600 lbs of live sand which isnt cheap either and the halides are very expensive itself. electricity expenses alone will be extreme. running lights, a massive protien skimmer, powerheads and so on adds up on the bill very fast.
