Info regarding Peacock Eel

So i saw a peacock eel at a LFS and was wondering are the closy related to the tire track eel? From things i were reading they get about 12 inches but the say that at a tank the max is about 6-7 inches and they are also good for a community tank.. as long as they are not smaller then 1".. Was wondering if the was true and if anybody else knws more info about them..

thank you

I believe there is a member with this fish, but can't remember who. Anyway, remember this is a predator and will eat small fish, so as it attains 6+ inches this will limit tankmates. I gather it remains hidden most of the time, likes to bury itself in the substrate.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
