    I posted a few before. Here you go 😀



    BTW, if you have a 75G and want to go salt, I can't think of an easier, bulletproof critter to start with. Immune to ick, velvet etc, these guys are amazing.

    Yes, I remember that video, still just as cool.
    If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

    Thanks Surfdog, you totally inspired me to keep a 2 to 2 1/2 foot Zebra myself. I was lucky to get one that was hand raised from a baby from a stranger on another forum. I need to get him more used to me and i'll try to get a video up too.1604431_10203932672784947_2696796783231088256_n.jpg

    Awesome! They are truly the beauty's of the Moray family. They are also in my opinion the most friendly and curious of the bunch. I have no fear whatsoever handling the zebras or doing in tank maintenance and them brushing up on my hands/arms. If you ever need help, please feel free to pm me. 😀

    BTW Roach, just one bit of advice. Remember at all times that your Zebra has very, very poor eyesight. They all do. Always know where he is before reaching in to move rock etc. Let him know your there. Hand raised or not, you can still startle and Morays react one of two ways, flee or attack. It's usually attack, lol. While it won't remove a whole finger, the inner (2nd) jaws in concert with the primary make for a very nasty bite, yours like one of my larger eels would require stitches at the least and loss of a finger tip at most. I'm not trying to scare you, but this warning is fair to both you and for your eels sake as well. 😉

    Thanks for the heads up, i'll use this advice to keep in the tank and my digits too, lol. To be honest I worry more about giving my dogs a treat when they are both trying to compete. The eel has been super gentle taking food and when handling him and he's not feeling it he just swims away.

    Yup, sounds like a well fed, happy Zebra to me 😃. They are very, I will use the word social when with other Zebras. Mine are always together, sticking out of the same nooks and rubbing heads. So interesting to watch as they are or seem to be curious about everything. If you can get frozen baby octopus, it's absolutely their favourite food. I like to give mine some variety like Pacific white shrimp, squid, muscles and of course the octopus. All their food comes from the grocers, so they're not breaking the bank. If your feeding silversides, I suggest not to often as they aren't as protein rich as the other food I mentioned. You should have many years of enjoyment and it sounds like your very happy with your new charge.
