Wolf-Eel Update: Now on Display

Wolf-eels on display

Our baby wolf-eels are now two months old and doing great!

Several are on display in Tank 9-D near the jellies. We’ve also begun sending some to other aquariums.

At this time, there are 24 on display.  That number will be reduced as they grow. We’re also working on ideas for a display once they begin to “settle” to the bottom, a phase which generally takes 2 – 3 years in the wild.  Prior to settling, they are pelagic (open-ocean) fish, one reason why there are no rocks or hiding places in the tank now.

Check out this video to watch the baby wolf-eels in action and learn how we feed the animals around the clock.
