This may be under the wrong section, but I think it's okay because it's mainly about my LFS.
So while I was at my LFS getting my fire eel, I was looking around. They have this huge (200 gallons, minimum) tank in the back that usually has all their oscars in it. I went over to check out the oscars, and only saw goldfish. Confused, I looked around the tank some more and saw bettas acclimating in their bags on the surface, soon to be put in their own containers. The goldfish weren't fancy, just some feeder fish. Then, OH CRAP, a huge 3 foot long black fish moved in the back! At first I thought, "giant BGK?", then, "probably a huge lungfish." But when I asked the fish guy, he said it was an ELECTRIC EEL. Priced at $600, straight from the Amazon. WOW! I have a whole new respect for my LFS. I didn't know where anyone could possibly get one of those things! I've read some about them online, but I would like to see one person walk in and buy this amazing eel. Pretty cool.
Also, the ignorant fish guy has apparently been studying! He was actually helping people when I went in. He helped me too. Nice!
