This Zig Zag Yellow Tail Eel requires a soft substrate in order to feel comfortable in its tank. It is important to keep a tight lid on the tank, as they are known to try and jump out. Furthermore, be aware that when it is digging, it can uproot plants and rearrange decorations. To ensure the safety of the fish, it is important to monitor its environment and rearrange decorations as needed. Additionally, keep an eye out for any aggressive tankmates that may harm the Zig Zag Yellow Tail Eel.
However, we do know that these eels are found in the warm waters of the Indo-Pacific region.
A carnivore that feeds primarily on live foods such as earthworms and black worms will likely be successful in feeding on this species. Prepared tablet foods as well as krill and ocean plankton may eventually be accepted as food.
