    Snowflake Moray Eels and ICH

    Hi, I am just wondering if a snowflake moray eel can get ich. I know that they are scaleless, and I haven't noticed and ich on my eel so far, but i have had an outbreak of ich in my marine tank. I am hoping that someone can help me answer this question. Thanks very much

    They can get ich, but need to be treated without copper... some other meds can be deadly to them also. Suggest moving your eel to a QT and treating with a few freshwater dips (no meds) as needed; plenty of info for that on the web. If you treat the display with copper, make sure you remove it all with a Polyfilter before returning the eel. The slime coatings on morays generally repel most pathogens; as a result they are very hardy and disease-resistant fish.
