They are usually available as juveniles and are usually a foot long and grow to the length of around two feet. They are not easy to find and come at a steep price. The diet of the Golden Moray Includes live fish and other types of meat. Golden Moray Eel is not an easy pet for aquarists as it can escape from the smallest of openings. They can give you a severe bite. Also, they can’t be kept with other fish as they are predators.
They have 2 sets of jaws which they use to capture their victim. They do not have the suction force that other Eels have. But like all other fish they breathe through gills that are located behind their head. Still, they need to take in big gulps of water to be able to breathe. That is why their mouth is usually open.
