Help Identifying Eel
My dad came home the other day from Petco and brought home a freshwater eel. My dad talked to the man that worked there, who claimed to be a marine biologist. My dad didn't write down what species it is, so I was hoping to get some of your opinions.
Also, I have been trying to feed him/her thawed shrimp, but he's not taken any interest in it. Any thoughts on what to feed it?
It's one of those moray eels (Gymnothorax sp.). They're marine species.:sad:
Yea that looks like a "freshwater" moray eel. I put the freshwater in quotes because although they can live in fw temporarily, they are disease prone and will not thrive in fw.
hi i have a large white eel in my 5ft setup and need some help identifying what species he is,any help would be great thanks.
