looks to me like an Echidna Nocturna commonly referred to as the Palenose Moray.
they are crustacean eaters and dont typically eat fish. Also i think they are more of a cold water eel but not 100% on that

Thanks! That is what it looks like. This eel is about 10-11" and is labeled as a jeweled moray, which it definitely is not. If I still had saltwater tanks going, I would buy it. Price is $70, but the store is taking 25% off to move it out.
Not sure why the photos are upside down.
