Super Small Hawaiian Dragon Eel

Thought I would share my new addition. This is a baby Hawaiian Dragon eel. He's only 4.5 to 5 inchs long. I just picked him up at the airport. The diver that caught him was looking for fish at night in a surge pool and happened to see this guy in 2 inches of water. enjoy

Sweet! I'd rather have this guy than an adult any day. Very cool. Is the diver a friend of yours?

Very nice. I contemplated getting that one, but passed (as I just moved out a dragon moray). You NEVER see them that small.

How long will he stay that small? Really cool little dude. I have thought about getting an GDM eel when I downgrade, and have an otherwise fishless tank.

wow! great find. keep us updated on how it does. Are specimens this size easier to get to adapt to tank life? I assume it would be.

I woudl expect him to grow quickly. Especially if well fed. The Dragon moray are VERY well suited for aquarium life, at all ages. Its just you rarely, if ever, see them this small. They are very cryptic at young ages, so usually only bigger adults are collected.
