I went to the LFS
today to pick up a snowflake eel. The guy who works there, who is quite knowledgable and keeps an excellent store, told me that a snowlfake would get too big for my 72gal. Now I'm a little confused. No one who responded to my post spoke about this aspect and even Scott Michael's "Marine Fishes" claims that the minimum size necessary is a 30gal tank. Although, I can see what the LFS
guy is saying when the max length of the eel is over 2ft. Does anyone have an opinion on this?
