A Spotted Eel has just systematically worked its way through our new guppies and fighters in one night. Little git is on his way to the pet shop to be swapped! They are great but avoid little slender fish. Our baby barbs and other unknown little fellas have been fine, so it must be the thin bodies of the eaten ones that appealed. Mistake with our new hobby number 1....

Hello animail world. I'm new here and I just bought a black spiney eel and he's great, he's about 5 inches long. He's amazing. Anyways take that one part very serious about them being ecape artists, cuz it's true. No more then 6 hours of having him he tried escape number 1, and I also noticed that they are really night time fish and they need fast moving fish. He started to attack my tiger barbs. I don't know what he's gonna do with my other tiretrack eel, hopfully it'll be a happy tank.

I'm new to this site. So far I have found it fascinating and extremely educational. I own two Clown Knife fish that I purchased about 5 months ago from a local pet store. (The told me the specimens were "African Clown Knife fish") -shrug- Anyway, I was wondering if the Black spotted Eel would get along with my Knife fish? The larger of the Knife fish is roughly 7-8" and the smaller about 6-7 1/2" I was thinking (if they would get along) about purchasing a Black Spotted Eel, probably 5-6 1/2"
Some advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you,
