i like to get them small 6-10 inch they are fun and really active during the day at that size. once they get 2+ feet i tend to only see him during feeding and an hour after the lights go off. im looking forward to getting him into the big tank

FishOfHex ok thank you I have been planning my 200 gallon reef tank that is cycling, I am planning on getting a snowflake eel for sure
FishOfHex
FishOfHex - 4 years ago
they eat clams in the wild so personally its to big of a risk to pay that much for one and put it in a tank with an eel. I have never had the eel eat a live snail before.

FishOfHex thanks for that! Got mixed answers, we have had the tank for more than a decade and am moving. We are going from a 95 wave to a 150gallon tank. Wanted a eel and was debating to have a dwarf gold eel or snow flake. My wife loves clams, so o may not get one. Thanx.

I go a 75 or 65 gallon tank and a baby snowflake eel with the brown head and he jumped s out every time I have no kid what can I do to make him stay in the tank
FishOfHex

First the tank is to small for a snowflake to be happy. Next thing you can do is get screen tops.

What's the best fish to keep in your tank so the eel doesn't eat them ?
FishOfHex
FishOfHex - 4 years ago
Its more or less up to the eels personality. My eel gets along with anything even what can fit in his mouth. Now some eels will take down bigger fish.

I have a question about my eel. I picked him up 4 days ago. I got him home, acclimated him, and put him in the tank. He instantly went to a rather large live rock that a spiny lobster had made a home underneath in the sand. Eel took it over and has been sifting through the sand making a couple little tunnels underneath that rock. Is this normal behavior? I had just aquascaped my tank in preparation for this eel, making some caves and nice spots for him to be in the rocks. Also, since I have got him, he hasn't eaten once. Not one time. I've tried thawed blood worms and thawed krill. I'll put it right in front of him and he'll just turn his head away. Now, since last night, I haven't seen him. I tried holding some food in front of one of his tunnels to entice him to come out; nothing. He never showed up. Ideas?
MR WOOTASTIC
MR WOOTASTIC - 4 years ago
Awesome! Thank you!
MR WOOTASTIC
MR WOOTASTIC - 4 years ago
Ok. So when aquascaping, place rocks past the sand and straight onto the bottom of the tank? I'm a newer reefer so I'm learning as I go. The rock hasn't shifted at all, but it is a large rock. Probably approx 25 lbs. My local stores do not have squid or octopus. Should I try just straight shrimp? Frozen from the grocery section? Thanks for the help!
FishOfHex
FishOfHex - 4 years ago
The eel should of been quarantined so you can make sure it doesnt introduce anything into the tank and so you can see it eat. The stress of shipping can make fish/eels not eat for several days and when an eel eats bloodworms are not part of its diet, they need to have bigger foods like shrimp, squid, octopus stuff like that. As for the digging that is normal but understand if you didnt put the rock on the bottom glass the eel will dig under the rock and could cause it to fall over. The best thing you can do now is offer up a better food.

What kind of crab are you feeding ? And what type of starfish was the black and white one? Btw I have a dwarf golden eel and he is so awesome. I just bought him last week and he's doing good! Great addition to the tank. Where can I get plastic to cover the overflow and what kind is it? Awesome video ! Subscribed to your channel.

FishOfHex
FishOfHex - 5 years ago
Its an Nikon Coolpix aw130. When i do my underwater stuff i leave the lights on regular setting that kinda plays with the color. But when i do video outside i lower the lights and adjust everything. Im still figuring the camera out, it has about a million different things. Either way i love ability to go inside the tank with it.
