Haha well it's still in there. Yeah... This one was in a tankless little square foot section and never escaped so I'm hoping he won't. But I am slowly looking into gettin a lid.

You're playing with fire! You should get a lid before he becomes eel jerky...

Yes I should but I don't want a glass or acrylic lid. I need something that breathes and that I can cut a hole in for the skimmer to stick through.

I currently have egg crates over the top if my tank the wholes are maybe 1"x1" and I cut around the filter and my legs for the lights and my skimmer. I don't know if its safe for the eel to squeeze through but it's better than nothing and cheap! They're called light diffusers at Home Depot.

Does anyone feel like this would be okay for the eel ? If so, I want one lol. I haven't purchased a snowflake yet because of this question.

Okay. I might do that. I don't think it would really stop the eel if he was trying to escape but it'd make it a little harder for him... Like I said though he was kept in a tiny tank with no lid so I'm assuming he's just going psycho for a bit. Who doesn't? haha. Today he's back to normal just chillin in the rocks.

It looks semi-nice and easy to cut just a pain in the *** to figure out the sizes of the cut outs at first. They were like 12 a sheet. I used 2. Might redo it and get black because the ones I have are white

My eel cracks out after the light goes out in my tank some times, also when food hits the water he starts going crazy and chasing any fish that gets near him, never tries to bite them, just gets excited about the food and freaks out. I had a glass lid for my tank but the front half of it broke so now I have a half lid. I had my eel escape twice when I had the full lid and he hasn't tried since. I think he may have learned his lesson but I may look into a light diffuser anyway just for some added peace of mind.
