I was at my LFS
and I'm finally stocking my 29 gallon Nano Cube HQI. (waited a year to put anything in there but LR
) I asked the employee to show me any fish with bright colors or unique fish that I could have in the tank. He immediately grabbed me and took me over to this tank...All there was was 2 Blue Damsels and a Rock (about 6 inches long).
: You can't see it now but there is a White Ribbon Eel in there!
: I thought eels were too big for a 29 gallon tank.
: No I have one in mine and it has been fine for over a year now! They can get up to 40" but it probably won't get that big. They are so thin and stay curled up that it will be fine in your tank.
: Aren't they really hard to feed.
: No watch this! Grabs a shiner drops it in the tank and nothing happens for about 30 seconds...Then BAM the eel somehow curls out of this little rock and grabs the shiner!
This eel is BEAUTIFUL!!
Anyways, the store is called Reef Plus and only sells saltwater fish (this makes me think they have to know what they are talking about)
Is a White Ribbon Eel really workable in a 29 Gallon Tank?
Does anyone have any experience with these creatures?!?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
(I posted a picture of my tank in case needed)
