Spotted eel

The Spotted eel lives in the reef-associated, marine, depth range - 3 m environment.

The Black Spotted Eel may not be brightly colored but it has a beautiful design! The Black Spotted Eel is also known as the Polka Dot Eel or Spotted Spiny Eel. As you can see in the photo above it sports an exotic looking color pattern. More

This spotted eel was tucked tightly into a coral bed waiting for his next meal. His gaping mouth makes him look very angry, but eels often open their mouths to increase water flow over their gills. More

The Gold Spotted Eel can be found in most parts of the Atlantic Ocean, including Southern Florida. Eels are hearty eaters who also produce a great deal of waste. Because of this, a well-established aquarium and excellent water filtration is highly recommended. More
