Husbandry


Gymnothorax moringa, (Cuvier, 1829)


Gymnothorax moringa, is a medium-sized snake-like fish with a smooth, muscular body covered in many small, overlapping black and white spots with a pale to white belly. This moray eel has a fairly large mouth with many sharp needle-like teeth. The dorsal and anal fins are edged with black. Males and females appear similar.

Found throughout the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, north to the Carolinas and south to Argentina. Also found in the mid-Atlantic islands. Spotted moray eels inhabit shallow reef areas, rock rubble zones and even sea grass beds.
