Moray Habitats

If you are of the “go big or go home” school of thought and are determined to have one of the larger moray eels, the first aquascaping decision – the size of your tank – will be determined by the species you choose to acquire.   

You will certainly be working to control some behavioral knowns. Morays are:

  • escape artists
  • have a tendency to eat their roommates
  • topple rocks and structures with abandon
  • hate too much light
  • can be aggressive or finicky eaters

All of these “knowns” are more easily managed in a tank that is the appropriate size for the eel in question (preferably with room to spare.)

All eels are escape artists, so a secure tank with a lid to prevent daring escape leaps is a must. The following rules of thumb for space requirements are good guidelines, but you should do species-specific research for any eel you plan to house.

One good way to do this is to join an aquarium discussion board and simply say, “I’m thinking of keeping a Snowflake Moray Eel. Any suggestions on aquascaping?”

Such forums are an excellent resource for “real world” advice from enthusiasts who have already tried certain arrangements and have a sense of what does and does not work with the species you’re considering.

If you do not have a species in mind and are still trying to select an eel, consider the following rough approximations:

  • Species that grow to an adult length of 3-5 feet / 0.91-1.52 meters need aquariums from 55-180 gallons / 208.2-681.4 liters.
  • Species of less than 2.5 feet / 0.76 meters can be housed in 20-30 gallon tanks / 75.7-113.5 liters.
  • So called “mini morays” that never grow beyond 15 inches / 38.1 cm can be kept in 10-15 gallon / 37.85-56.78 liter tanks.

    A good book for anyone thinking about keeping eels as pets

    Good job explaining aquarium “eels”, Moray’s, Spiny, Eel-Like fish, and misc. eels. Very good information on creating the aquatic environment with a special section about Moray tanks. A good guide with helpful information covering much of what I wanted to know.
