Sad news for me.....
 
Well, this morning I found my almost 3yr old 16" fire eel on the floor, all dried up. I have no idea how he got out, I had the glass tops on, and the gaps between the filter and glass top isn't very wide. So I have no idea as to how he got out. :(

But fire eels are great escape artists, Lonewolfblue.:( Even the smallest gaps are just enough for them to be able to escape from the tank.:shake:
