newish snowflake eel in QT

I am far too impatient for this hobby because I just want to put him in my DT already

He's been in QT for going on 2 weeks now and is looking good.



He's about as big around as a pencil and probably 5 - 6 inches in length currently.

He looks good. what size tank is he going in? Make sure to keep a tight lid on there as they are the best when it comes to escaping.

He's going to be going into a 90g. I've fish proofed my lid, I lost too many fish to jumping

He looks great! Enjoy seeing him while you can! Once he's in that 90g you might not get a good look as often, haha!

As long as I can see him once in a while. Maybe coax him out with food

He can be my secret buddy.

Sounds like a plan! That's the only way I ever get to see my skeletor eel! Food gets them out and about every time B)

if he is the size of a pencil, he will escape out a hole the size of an large air tube, they will escape out of the smallest opening

What a beautiful eel I just got a peacock eel last week and have a dojo loach. Eels are the most fun to watch them swim around IMO


Caleb

Might have a slight obsession with my fish
