    Congratulations Lynn - I've read that these eels can be almost impossible to get eating. Your's seems to be coming right out for it. Someone on RC posted a while ago about his black ribbon eel turning blue after he settled in and was eating well. Pretty interesting animals.

    Very interesting fish. I haven't read too much about them. Reef safe or species tank?

    I really like them because they stay so small and elegant looking. All juveniles are black and turn blue as they reach maturity. I also had read about them being next to impossible to get onto frozen?? for some reason...I can get anything to eat!!
    aquaman....personally I would have to see this type of eel catch a chromis or any fish for that matter to believe that it was capable of it. These guys are so slow and blind you wouldn't believe it! Infact I really don't know how they survive! He is so slow he can't even catch a almost dead guppy. He has to go over and over the food before seeming to realize that it is there. I know several other people that have them as well and they all say the samething.

    Lynn,
    it is to my understanding that the eel would hunt them down at night when they were hiding in the rocks. i think he lost alot of chromis. has'nt lost any since
