The Yellow Head Moray Eel is a medium sized species of moray. The eel’s overall body colour is white, clad with brown fimbriations (bars/stripes broken up in loosely vertical patterns) that give it an ornate banner-like appearance. As its name suggests, the head is a golden-yellow colour that adds to its visual allure.

The Yellow Head Moray Eel requires an established aquarium with very strong filtration. The addition of an efficient protein skimmer is highly recommended as the carnivore diet of this eel tends to generate a lot of waste. Aquascape liberally with live rock of varying shapes and sizes to create a network of caves, crevices, and tunnels for your Yellow Head Moray Eel to explore and seek shelter during the day. Appropriately sized PVC tubes can also be used to create artificial "dens". Most active at night, the Yellow Head Moray Eel spends most of the day hiding, moving about at night in search of food.

All Moray Eels are escape artists and to prevent loss, secure a tightly-fitting aquarium top and make sure there are no openings for the eel to slip through.

A predator by nature, the Yellow Head Moray Eel requires two or three substantial meals per week comprised of meaty foods such as frozen fish such as silversides, krill, shrimp, or crustacean flesh offered on a feeder stick. Moray Eels have poor eye sight and should never be fed by hand to avoid injury. It is imperative to be cautious with Moray Eels as they possess powerful jaws along with seriously sharp teeth.
