    Snowflake eel.....NICE

    Im thinking about getting a snowflake eel. Really love the look of them. Does anyone on aquaria have any experience with eels?

    If so, what other fish do you have in the tank and tell me about any problems that you have had since having one.

    Thx

    They are escape artist so make sure there is NO WAY for him to exit the tank ... including through your overflows. Otherwise you will find him on the floor in due time.

    from talking to some dude on RC, he had his in a tank with a cleaner shrimp and the cleaner even cleaned him. This is my personal opinion but i think it all comes down to if you get an agressive one or not...

    HMMM never seen one with legs AK so I think jumping out is going to be a wee bit difficult.

    Cool

    dukn, most things will let cleaners clean them as thats what there there for but small fish will be snacks for an eel. I always wanted one but I like small fish like royal grammas and wrasses.

    Didn't someone get an eel this past summer and post the escapes it made? There was something about it squirming up his arm when he opened the bag to put it in the tank.
