They will be going in the 180gal Oscar tank.
I have read from ALOT of different places that they are compatable with oscars and they need alot of hiding places which I have.
They also will spend alot of time in the sand substrate.

Cant put up pics yet because I haven't picked them up yet.

This is not a pic of my eel but one I found on the net that look just like my two.
Can't get a pic of mine cause they are always down in the sand with just a small part of the head sticking out.

the name that was with this pic is Macrognathus aculeatus.
Is this correct? is this indeed a Peacock spiny eel?

Thanks for the help Tortis.
