Eel Buddies


THIS LITTLE GOLDENTAIL EEL used to live in a coralhead right at the top of the house reef at Buddy Dive Resort on Bonaire. I used to stop by and say hello every time I did a dive there.

One year, it was joined by its distant chain moray cousin – two wild and crazy guys living it in the same efficiency apartment. Small, but a waterfront view!


After that one time I never saw the chain moray again. Alas, on my last Bonaire trip, the goldentail was gone as well, hopefully having moved up to nicer quarters in a new neighborhood. With a waterfront view.
