New eel

I'm getting a new eel later today. Should I quarantine this as I would others or not worry too much. I know they don't carry ich and other external issues regularly so I'm inclined to put it in the display tank. Any experiences with this out there?

I'd be interested to find out more about this too as I plan on getting a zebra in a couple of months.

I didn't QT my snowflake but I don't advise it. Anything can happen and i don't think anyone wants to be the one who says its ok and you end up with a tank issue from it lol

Eels and lion fish are very resistant to ich, especially in the wild, but in a closed system they can get it, rarely.
