This guy was listed as a moray eel. There was another name before the moray part, but for the life of me I can't remember what it was!

The shop keeper was moving her finger along the front of the tank and he was following it. It was fun to watch.

P.S. I will try to get pictures of mine.
Morays never get "mean". They are very calm animals unless you don't feed them and they get very hungry. Even then they wouldnt bite a finger unless the hand smells like fish or anything.

Eels and Morays are everything than blind. Thats a stupid fairy-tail. I consider myself moray expert. I catch more then 60 Morays in the ocean the past few months and always have a few at home. They see very well and yes they do start to know persons and learn very quick but never forget about their natural behavior.

That's not a moray. That's a tessalada. I used to have one. He was 5.5 feet long.
Wrong they are all Morays or some call them Eels. They are many different versions of morays.

I just catch a new Goldentail Baby and I took some pics today:

I got another one for sale in the section for buy and sell in this forum.

Thumbs up

OMG!!!! Morays are AMAZING!!! Eels are really cool, but most people just say "eel? that's disgusting!!" and then run away screaming. I'm glad there's finally SOMEBODY besides me who appreciates eels as much as they should be appreciated!!
