Advice on snowflake

I am buying a snowflake eel next week and was wondering any specific size I should buy him at and if it is recommended to quarantine him.

It is best to buy a snowflake eel that is 10 inches long. If you choose smaller than that, there is a great chance for it not to live long, especially because of the shipment conditions.

I recommend QT any fish you get, especially with saltwater. What size aquarium do you have?

Yes perfect size. Should I keep my quarantine tank running with my display tank water for the week before I put him in

QT should always be completely separate from your main tank unless you just plan to Hold the animal. QT = medicate.
