Chain Eel (Echidna catenata)


The Chain Eel or Echidna catenata is also known as the Chainlink Moray Eel or just the Chain Moray Eel. This Eel has a whitish yellow body with black or brown chain markings, hence its name! Like most Eels it spends a lot of its time in a hiding space so if you are planning on keeping this creature as a pet make sure your aquarium has plenty of nooks and crannies to hide in. This type of Eel requires 2 or 3 live meals (grass shrimp, fiddler crabs) per week. Water temperature of 72-78° F and a PH Level of 8.1-8.4 is recommended. The Chain Eel can grow to about 2-1/2' in length.
