I agree, I think the tank is a bit short in length. But it's wide. I also agree that an eel would be a better choice.
As far as inflexible spines - my BGK is about 12 inches long and when it was netted, the fish almost folded in half. It was also able to turn around in the bag. Both things I did not expect, after hearing about how inflexible they are.
