Peacock Eel
 
My new Peacock Eel. Today I found it on the floor, it had knocked off the lid of the hang-on-back filter and made its way outside but he is ok right now but im shure its pretty stressed tho. This clever little guy is already giving me a hard time. :P I had to ask my neighbor for his cam. I regret trashing my old vivicam now! :lol:

I like them too, Tangy. Not as big as a tiretrack, which is good.

I like Peacock Eels as well. :)

I hope I can get one when I upgrade.

Thanks guys. After long hard research I am glad I came across this of all eels. While not the smallest, it is in no way the biggest. Fire Eels-> now there is a monster sized eel :shock:

That's a fantastic looking fish Tange - I like them a lot. How big can it be expected to grow?

I think they usually get around 10-12" long, but most average 8-10"
