    Spaghetti Eels... behaving like bugs bunny :D

      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.

      I've never seen these guys in person. They seem pretty cool, really lively.
