Hey murph, Is there any particular eel you like? Snowflake morays are popular (and reasonably priced) and do not tend to reach their growth potential (30") in captivity, most stopping at about 12"-18". It really depends on what you like, do you want a moray eel? or will other types do? I am not an eel eficianado, but if you'll give me an idea of what you want, I'll put some thought into it and see what I can come up with. Depending (greatly) on what type of eel it is...will determine what (if anything) will be sage with it, in most cases though...hermits and other crabs are out.

hey admins,

I think it is great that we are a international forum now. However it makes it hard to answer questions that people from other countries ask. Could you guys make a conversion scale that would benifit people from all countries. Like wieght, measurements (as in length,height, width and depth), and tempature. It would make it much easier for me to help people like Murphamon. If you dont feel its nessasary, then say "Micheal, shut up and do your homework!!" LOL.

Murphamon, Sorry, I dont know much about eels, but I hope to learn more about your setup, if I can get them ol' admins to help me out. LOL. good luck!!

hmm, I think your tank is too small to house an eel, a baby eel for awhile maybe...but that is about it.
