The Golden Dwarf Moray Eel (Gymnothorax Melatremus) is a tiny Moray Eel species that can only reach around 12″ in length. The color ranges from a deep yellow to brown with a lighter belly. This simple and captivating coloration is often embellished with dustings of brown dots or a subtle speckled pattern. Alongside its small dimensions, another charming characteristic of the Dwarf Moray is its light blue “cat eyes”.

This Golden Dwarf Moray Eel requires an aquarium with a capacity of 65 gallons or greater with extremely strong filtering. A powerful protein skimmer is suggested because the carnivore diet of this eel is known to produce plenty of waste. Aquascape extensively with live rock in a variety of dimensions and shapes to form the appearance of crevices, caves, as well as tunnels to allow to allow your Dwarf Moray Eel to discover and find shelter throughout the daylight hours. A suitable size PVC tubes can also be used to build fake “dens”. They are most active during the evening. The Golden Dwarf Moray Eel is found spending the majority of the time in hiding and moving around in search of food.

Moray Eels have escape capabilities. To prevent loss, put a secure aquarium top and ensure there aren’t any gaps for the eel’s slippage.

A natural predator the Dwarf Molar Eel needs two or three large meals per week, consisting of meaty meals such as frozen or live fish, such as silversides shrimp, krill, or crustacean flesh. These are served on a stick for feeding. Moray Eels have weak eye vision and should not be fed with a hand to avoid injuries. It is essential to be aware of Moray Eels since they have powerful jaws as well as sharp teeth.
