I put another eel in the tank today and they did good together until 4am and they were cutting each other pretty good in the face. I removed one immediately, but wanted to see if you guys that let them work it out or what , did they cut an scratch eacj other . It wont matter too much cause im not putting the other eel back in .

Just trying to get some feedback from veterans . Will they heal ok
etc, any medication or the salt gonna heal them

I feel terrible !!

We had a eel specialist come by the house and he said it was male /female fighting and it would have not ended as good as it did!!I removed the male at 4am . They are now seperated and doing ok, with bacteria medication to help the wounds to heal
I am looking for a home for the male , he is 5ft !!Preferably a State or public aquarium .

Please email me if interested

This was a huge error for me and a learning process. I hope others can learn and not try and rescue or buy Green Morays !!
They are about as aggresive as any marine life can be. If you ever saw these eels fight you would not want to be into this hobby , it was horrible!!

She is in a 300gl tank . I had been working on building a 1100 gallon for the 2 of them , but doesnt look like that will happen right now. He does swim quite a bit in the tank , kinda Nascar style though !
They both are healing and starting to act with normal behavior .... wounds are looking better on day 3 .

Hopefully soon , we can build him his own Disney world !! hehe
