The Blue Ribbon Eel has several unique characteristics that have led some to suggest that they should place in its own family, the Rhinomuraenidae. It has an extremely long, thin body, with broad dorsal and anal fins that give it a ribbon-like appearance. In the wild occurs at a depth range from 1 to 57 m (3.3 to 188 feet) and is most abundant on coastal reef slopes and in protected lagoons.
Although this eel is sometimes observed living in holes in hard reef substrate, it is most commonly seen in sand, mud or among coral rubble. Eels usually acclimate quickly to aquarium life, plenty of hiding places and a varied diet with meaty foods should be provided. In captivity it is also known to be very aggressive on community tanks, the Acclimation time should be between half to one and a half hour.
