    Saw this eel in a coral head with 2 other eels and some type of worm looking creature. Is it an albino or something else?

    In Bonaire? Looks like a Spotted Moray Eel.

    I don’t think it’s an albino- that’s a defined set of traits.

    looks more like a Pacific variety but yes, location and approximate size would help
