This eel is amazing and may rival the fire eel IMO. Has anyone had any experience, or even seen these? What are your thoughts on combining species? For example, a fire eel with one of these (of course in a big tank). My guess is luck and getting them both young would be your only chance.

I've never had a black spotted eel, but he looks gorgeous!! From what I read, they can be territorial, but they are not highly territorial and yes, a large tank would be needed. If you get one, I hope you know pictures are a MUST!

lol, of course pictures. I was more dreaming of tanks and eels are my favs, behind puffers. So this isn't actually happening sadly.

This thing is like a leopard snake, it's amazing.
