The Garden Eel, also known as Hass's Garden Eel, looks like an oceangrass colony. The majority of the Garden Eel can be found in sand and, should it be approached, it will retreat into the substrate. The Garden Eel must keep in a large 40 gallon or larger aquarium that has at six inches of sand and a mild flow, and with no aggressive tankmates. Decor should be kept to an absolute minimum. A tightly-fitting lid is necessary to stop the escape. The Garden Eel diet consists of fleshy food items and live animals such as freshwater ghosts or tiny feeder fish.
