i`m really sorry to mention this but all the petshops in my area clearly fail. Only one brings marine fish and the others only bring freshwater fish. I tried to explain to them why their eel wasnt feeding and why their puffers die so fast. they just insist that these are freshwater fish. i really believe they have no idea what a brackish water tank is and just bring the fish they find are in the highest demand. I have taken care of eels before, including an american eel and a fire eel.
my next question is perhaps can he go into a full marine tank straight away?
