The Kidako Eel is often considered to be the é─˙Holy Grailé─¨ amongst aquarium owners who keep Eels. Kidako Eels are a rare find in the aquarium industry and are originally from the waters of the Western Pacific. Kidako Eels are great for a reef aquarium but they can feed on crustaceans, so it is best to keep the Kidako Eel in an aquarium that is mostly fish.
