This moray is rarely seen during the day usually at feeding time. Feeds on small fish, shrimp, and shellfish.
Be careful when bitten by a moray eel because of the risk of bacterial infection.
Moray eals are sedentary bottom dwellers they are active at night. They have fixed places in the aquarium and change this rarely.
