Yaeh..I believe the snowflake eel starts in freshwater and slowly moves its way into salt. A lot of LFS constantly sell them as freshwater but I hear/read that they won't last long that way...
I have a 30 gallon, 55,120(just purchased)...180 gallon and I'll be building with my uncle in the comming months a 400 galloon plywood tank in the basement:) the fire eel was going to eventually be moved to the 180 for awhile but..since he was only 9 inchs..I don't think it would've been fair..I had him in the 55 to grow out a little more.
