The Yellow Canary Eel, Gymnothorax miliaris, hailing from Brazil, also referred to as the Golden Moray Eel, is a rare variation of eel for the home aquarium. Many consider this the finest and rarest quality of moray eel to hit the aquarium trade. For a moray, the Yellow Canary Eel is mildly mannered though will still eat smaller fish it can easily swallow. The Yellow Canary Eel is often best kept with other species of its own kind or other morays. Like most other eels, your tank should have a very tight fitting lid to prevent the eel from jumping or escaping as they like to do. Also be careful when feeding the eel as they may try to nip at stray fingers, therefore it is recommended to use some semblance of feeding tongs to do so. It is not uncommon for eels to fast for weeks on end so do not become concerned if it appears your eel is not feeding. The Yellow Canary Eel will undoubtedly be the highlight on any tank as its uniqueness and beauty combine to make for a spectacular specimen.
