eh..not always..but i try. i meant that a softball sized fish that swims around is going to find a 45 less than optimal, but an angler, that rarely ever swims, will find it much more to his liking.

eels for the most part are pretty inactive as well, at least my snowflake was. I had him in a 20 for a while.

Well most do but not all the time. They move around a lot when on the hunt and what not, plus they have a fairly entertaining "I'm gunna eat you" dance that they do before the swallow their prey whole which they need some space for as well.

besides the size of the fish, you should also consider their feeding habits. you are going to be putting a lot of meaty foods in that tank for predators. keep this in mind. you could foul the water of a tank that size pretty easily if you load it up with these guys.

Ok, I'll be sure to be careful, I'll go slow, and might just stick with the puffer, although the angler interests me....
