The Wolf Eel is an incredibly majestic fish and is a popular choice for a larger aquarium. It requires a minimum of 125 gallons with plenty of hiding spots and a tight-fitting lid to ensure it does not escape. Additionally, it can also be kept in a reef aquarium, but it should be noted that it may consume smaller fish and crustaceans. Therefore, it should not be placed in a tank with vulnerable inhabitants. Furthermore, it is important to ensure the aquarium is well-monitored and regularly maintained to ensure a healthy environment.

Its diet should also include a variety of vegetables, such as spinach, lettuce, and cucumber. Additionally, it is important to provide it with a calcium supplement such as cuttlebone or oyster shell. To ensure a balanced diet, it is also beneficial to include some Spirulina in its meals.
