I am not familiar with the common name of Swamp Eel. My guess is that this is the reason why you have not gotten a response to your question yet.

Can you post a picture?

Do you mean one of these guys?

I really don't think I've ever said this before, and please excuse me for being rude, but that is an UGLY fish.

I couldn't find anything about people keeping them in fish tanks before, so I can't really help you there.

hmm no thats not him hes smaller but because hes nocturnall its rare that i can get a pic of him before he goes back underground when i can i will but it seems at though this is normal because hes been out cruising at night (of course when i dont have my camera) but anyways hes been doing this for a while so im assuming its nothing big
