This eel should not be kept in an aquarium with any other fish or invertebrates, as it will consume them. It is important to establish a stable environment for this species, as it is sensitive to changes in water parameters and may become stressed if conditions are not optimal. With the right environment, this eel can make a great addition to any living space. Moreover, it can live up to 20 years in captivity and is relatively low maintenance.

The Black Edge Moray Eel is an excellent predator and its diet consists of live feeder fish, squid, and octopus. It is important to keep in mind that the eel may also eat other fish in the aquarium, so it is important to be aware of the size and activity level of the fish being kept in the same tank. Additionally, it is recommended that the eel is fed every other day to ensure it receives a balanced diet and is healthy. With proper care and diet, the Black Edge Moray Eel can be a fascinating addition to any aquarium.
