My new pickups.. Dovii & Fire Eel

Well first is the dovii that I picked up.. it's about 3" and has a ton of black spots so I'm crossing my fingers for a male. This pic is while stressed, even more spots then this normally.



Next is the fire eel. I told my LFS that I wanted a fire eel for the 120 gallon tank that I'm setting up for my Red Wolf Fish, bichirs and rope fish. Well he called me today and told me he got one in for me. I was expecting a 4-6" Fire eel, nope, this guy is 16" long and fat. It's in the 55 for now while my 120 finishes cycling.. oh yea he's sweet!

Thanks! Although your right.. Spiney eels are actually fish and not eels
