The Golden Banana Moray Eel is a truly spectacular creature, found on the reefs off of the South American coast. This species of eel can reach up to 2 feet in length and boasts a brilliantly hued yellow coloration. Its body is thick and muscular, like most morays, and it is the same species as the Fire Coral Eel, though its rare yellow form is remarkable. This eel makes a beautiful addition to any saltwater tank and can be a rewarding pet for any aquarist. With the right care, this stunning specimen should live a long and healthy life in captivity.

The Golden Banana Moray Eel should only be kept by experienced aquarists who are prepared to create a secure and suitable environment for the eel. It is essential to ensure that the lid of the aquarium is secure and does not have any small openings, as the Golden Moray Eel is an excellent escape artist. Additionally, it is important to note that the eel has the potential to inflict severe bites, and therefore should be exercised with extreme caution. For these reasons, it is recommended that the Golden Moray Eel is not kept by most aquarists.

Golden Moray Eels are carnivorous and require a diet that includes live fish and all meaty foods.
