Oops...duh!! The name is right in the topic title. Sorry...LOL. Hate it when that happens
There weren't ANY photos under the scientific name at all...not even of other fish. So much for Google, but I did come across photos under cusk eels. From what I'm gathering here is those fish are neither gobies nor eels. Just because the word 'eel' is in its name doesn't make it a true eel...just eel like. True eels do not have fins. Another example is the Wolf Eel, which is actually a blenny.
Any of several bottom-dwelling, eellike, chiefly marine fishes of the family Ophidiidae.
The above was taken from dictionary.com.
Sorry to hear about your LFS
. It may be difficult no matter where you go to find these fish on the market. If divers have to go 100 feet or more for these fish, you might not find them available at all. Too much for a diver to bother with being they'd have to decompress several times for a good period of time each stop on the way up. Decompression from such depths can take hours. Even dives deeper than 50 feet for aquarium fish can be quite hazardous. This is why such deep reef/ocean animals are difficult to obtain in the aquarium trade and why the ones that are on the market are expensive. Good luck.
We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.
The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.
