New fire eel

So I picked up a new fire eel today for my 75 I talked my sister into giving it to me, her tank was over crowded. I don't know if it's stunted or not but she's had it for about 5 months and it hasn't grown and I don't know what it was eating. I've had a couple of these guys before, the last one disappeared which I think became dinner. He's now in my 75 with my fahaka puffer, royal pleco, and clown loach. The top is completely taped off. No holes and the intake for the canister filter has a ball Inside of it so there's no way for it to get out.

He looks healthy. You will need to upgrade. I wish I had a fire eel.

That part I know . Everything that I have in my tank as filtration and everything goes way above and beyond what I need for a 75. I was planning for the future when I purchased them. Alls I have to do is find the tank now.

Thanks bettaowner. I always try to plan ahead for things like this. I have a 29 too with mystery snails and marble crayfish so I can feed the puffer instead of having to buy food

That almost looks like a peacock eel. Is there circle patches by its tail?
