First off, welcome and thank you for your service!

Glad you are back into the hobby, sorry it had to start this way. Sounds like everything should be settled in no time.

Thanks to everyone for the encouragement, it means a lot. I was reading up on that ralley medication... It seems like that is a treatment for a parasite or bacteria... I could be way off, but I just assumed the flakey skin was due to him being out of water for an unknown time. When I got him back in the tank his skin was all but dry. I know the whole ordeal must have been stressful which could lead to issues, but could he simply be "shedding" any dry skin? Thanks again all!

It almost sounds like marine velvet when the skin looks like its peeling off. Google marine velvet and see if it looks like it. I had velvet on my engineer gobies and rally did the trick

Also, I'm pretty sure eels can't be dosed with copper so if it's not a bacterial infection- I wouldn't know what else to recommend. But I will say this- whenever my fish do get ick I dose with rally because usually with ick comes an infection. Good luck

So, here is a pic of the new tank. I am still working on it, but it is coming along. I will try to get a pic of the eel if he decides to come out and play.

Thanks a lot. We ended up getting it from a "home depot" type place out here. The LFS only had smaller tanks. We are happy with this one. It is made by Eheim, and came equipped with t5 lights, although not enough of them. : ) Now I want to work on setting up led moonlights if I can find any that are dual voltage.

Dang, that tanks is awesome! It looks so modern and sleek, much better than most of the tanks I've seen.

Thanks, yeah we really liked it. I definitely ended up with a nicer tank, but I would not want to go through all that again just for it.
