Hate to be the guy to say it, but that trigger has no place in a tank so small. It will quickly get stressed from the cramped size and easily raise parameters. I would suggest trading him back for something more appropriate for that sized tank.

You should do research before adding any fish to a tank. And on top of this, catching fish in such a manner is illegal just about everywhere.
I'll assume since you just up and grabbed these guys, your tank is uncycled as well. You'll need to keep up with water changes to prevent the ammonia and nitrite levels from killing off these fish.

Yes I've done research on these fish. I think he will be okay 😃. I'm still cycling my tank HD is in quarantine rn. Also it is legal to catch fish. I live in Hawaii and its very legal here ☺.

Actually, it isn't. Hawaii has the strictest laws on such activities in all of the states.
Hawaii Tropical Fish Association
A simple read and missing the fine details, but this is still not an activity that you should be doing.

I'm sorry but you don't know the rules here. Its 100% legal to fish and catch fish on Oahu. There are some places on the island that are resavores but it isn't the whole island......

Then we will simply agree to disagree. Sadly, the fact of the matter still stands that a tank that small will not support a sloppy eating eel and a trigger.
