Echidna nebulosa

Introduce an element of intrigue and mystique to your marine aquarium with the enigmatic Snowflake Eel. With its slender body adorned with mesmerizing patterns resembling snowflakes, this eel species exudes a unique charm that captivates observers. Despite its imposing appearance, the Snowflake Eel is generally considered reef safe, making it suitable for well-established reef environments. However, it's essential to provide ample hiding spots within rock formations or crevices, as well as a secure lid on the aquarium to prevent escape attempts. As carnivorous predators, Snowflake Eels primarily feed on small fish, crustaceans, and mollusks, making them effective hunters for controlling populations of unwanted pests in the tank. While they may exhibit territorial behavior towards conspecifics or similarly sized fish, they generally coexist well with a variety of tank mates when provided with sufficient space and hiding spots. With their intriguing appearance and beneficial pest control abilities, Snowflake Eels are prized additions to reef aquariums, adding both visual interest and ecological functionality to the underwater landscape.

These fish are for saltwater aquariums only.
