The Peppered Bluntnose Moray Eel are a large species, juveniles have large spots, which develop pale centres and break up inti numerous black flecks as they mature.

This is a very hardy eel, but is an escape artist, and requires a tightly sealed aquarium. An aquarium with plenty of live rock for hiding is ideal for the eppered Bluntnose Moray Eel . Most of the eels that are lost in an aquarium are due to poorly sealed tanks. These eels are very aggressive in the aquarium, and will eat any fish, crustacean or other eel that it can swallow. 

The Peppered Bluntnose Moray Eel is a ambush predator of fish and crustaceans. In the aquarium it will learn to feed during the daylight hours, and it will take frozen or freeze-dried krill, fish, shrimp, and most meaty foods. It can be taught to hand feed, although this should be done with caution, as it can inflict a painful bite.
