I got a freshwater moray eel once, it got stuck behind the filter tube and suffocated, I caught it right as it was gasping but it never recovered, they are a brackish fish I believe, I read that somewhere, mine was really long, I was soo bummed, give it pipes to hide in they like it, 2" pvc works great
I also used to have a moray eel, mine lived in freshwater and never ate a thing the whole time I had it, it died after 3 months.
it spent that 3 months in a cave curled up in a ball, it was around 12" long.

He is freshwater and brown. Why would I call him mavis? I like slinky.
"Any thoughts on names" - pcrose

can you describe its mouth and pattern on the side?
A really good link for any moray eel owner

and you should call it Mavis!
I am pretty sure it is some kind of moray eel
I am going to add that the moray eel I owned was the hardest fish to feed I have ever owned, and I did not sucseed in keeping mine for long

I never actially got mine to eat, but most of the stuff I read about them said they strike quickey like a snake, and hold on the head of the prey, and constricts itself around it and swollows in one.
sounds really cool, but I never saw it.

I think they eat live fish
