Husbandry

Strophidon sathete (Hamilton, 1822)

Strophidon sathete is the largest known moray eel in the world with a length of up to 4 meters, but this does not mean that it is also the heaviest moray eel, with this order can adorn the giant moray eel (Gymnothorax javanicus), which can weigh up to 30 kg.

Did you know which is the smallest moray eel in the world? This "mini record" is held by the Snyder moray eel (Anarchias leucurus) with just 11.5 cm in full-grown condition.

The slender giant moray eel lives in muddy areas at the lower reaches of rivers, estuaries and coastal marine waters and is not an animal for a typical home tank due to its size.
