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 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.
