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. :(




Even though it is the same planet, underwater is a whole different world.

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.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
