A 3 ft long fire eel

Just for anyone interested. This fish is housed with tetras, rasboras, geophagus, and some huge plecos. The tank is 240 gallons. Dutch style planted. No it isn't mine.

Here's my friend Charley hand feeding his monster.

Fantastic...I can't wait until mine get up around that size. I saw one that big at a LFS a few weeks ago...just stunning.

Frozen shrimp

I wish I had taken more pics because I think this is the coolest home tank I've ever seen. He has a pile of driftwood in the center of the tank positioned so the eel can hide away. Watching it meander its way through the maze of wood is quite a sight.

madasafish, I need to get you over there. I forgot to mention that he's a school of the most colorful bosemani rainbows in that tank as well.

Sounds like you've foung a whole host of places we need to visit upon our next LI trip. I'm thinking that waiting until summer is just pointless for some sort of meet-up (though that will, of course, be the first opportunity to use the pool), so we should think about doing something fairly soon.

I had one that was at least 2'. It was the only fish my non-fishy hubby complained about when I had to get rid of him. I really liked him a lot & he was very beautiful, but every morning I had to replant every plant in the tank! I don't see how your friend keeps live plants in with that eel!
