Description
The smallest in the genus, Gymnothorax melatremus grows to only about 12". Although it is found throughout the Indo-Pacific, it is rarely seen because of its reclusive nature and small size. Ours come from a diver in Hawaii who has a great site where he collects them. The color of this eel is a dirty yellow color with speckling on the body with bright blue eyes. These eels are extremely popular and not always available. In captivity they are rarely aggressive. We have kept them with smaller fish and some crustaceans in reef aquariums with no problems to date. Care should be taken though as they are capable of eating the smallest of fish and shrimp/crabs. Generally accepting frozen food, we have never had to offer live food to these eels. They seem to have a thing for the flavor of frozen Formula 2. Their typical size is around 7"-10", about the diameter of a pencil. We have found them to be fairly active during the day, which was a pleasant surprise. Covers for your aquarium are advised.
