Can anybody identify this please.

My friend bought this Eel. It was labeled as "Snowflake eel". I have researched snowflakes and it looks nothing like it.It was also sold as "Freshwater". I thought there wasn't freshwater eels. except electric eels.The pics came from my cell phone, so they aren't the greatest quality.

the eel is in its own freshwater tank since purchased 3 weeks ago.




THANK YOU!!!

i cannot identify the eel but as far as i know there are fresh, brackish and fully marine eels.
i can also agree that is not a snowflake ( which are full marine )

however i feel it is a shame something was purchased without at the very least minimal research.

what size tank is it currently in, what have you been feeding, what are the other tank buddies, what temp. do you keep it and all that good stuff?
