I'm not a saltie, but it seems wrong to me at least to keep a 4' fish in a 4' tank...certainly an unusual advertisement either way.

Wow I'm surprised that fish isn't on it's side and retarded like oscars get if you try and enclose them too long like that.

Wow poor eel. Nowhere to hide and he's as big as the tank.

Tanks with eels tend to be high rather than long from what iv seen with people keeping them and they need their own cave to pop out of to snag food. But that's ridiculous for a 4'

Eels can bend easily so it doesn't have to be insanely long for a big eel. But to have a green moray which reaches 8 feet in anything less than a 1000 gallon tank is stupid

TXaggie, if u can find that listing again, could u maybe send the link to the lister's municipal aquarium. There's a possibility they will buy the eel from the person and the tank without eel will get relisted.

Couldn't find the listing again, unfortunately. Hopefully that means someone sensible bought the eel and will put him in a more appropriate set up.
