So, I finally get the Spaghetti Eels I ordered. I thought they are Moringua Raitaborua, but the ones I got are not pink. Their bodies are like monopterus albus, they have paddle-like tails, their faces are like morays... but they behave more like Bugs Bunny!

That is, not long after I plunge them to my aquarium, they immediately gone burrowing! I just turn my back for a short while, then as I look back, they already gone beneath the sand. They stuck out their head every now and then (like Bugs Bunny!), but everytime I bring my face closer to my aquarium, they will pull their head back in and swim underneath the sand, making curious patterns. Even my whitecheek moray got confused (I think ;) ) as it remained home and not coming out at all.

I have no regrets; they are so funny. Watching them swimming underneath the sand are hillarious, kind like watching a Bugs Bunny movie :D

And, Bugs Bunny for comparison! :D

Very cute! Going out on a limb here but will morays be at all predatory/aggressive to the other eels?

Not my moray, as it is an Echidna Rhodochilus, a rather docile type, which are always cool with other eels. But other types of morays, especially of the Gymnothorax family, are not to be trusted.
