I'm surprised your husband didn't kill it first. I wouldn't give it a second look before I go running for a machete, lol.

Re: Long fin eel tank

Thanks guys...

Absolutely enthralled with Beastie....fascinating critter!.

I had a lesson in eel ownership yesterday lol

Beastie arrived after a 2 hour car trip, pretty much straight into the tank. Now i know they are escape artists, so a had eel proofed the tank. Strong cloth tape over any small gap, and this stuff sticks like superglue. I had come outside multiple times to check and still had an eel in the tank....yay for me i thought lol
30 mins later i am inside and i hear my Hubby's panic calling out to me, bolt outside and he points and says is that the eel.....me thinking cant be!! So i rush over and lo and behold there is Beastie laying in the grass, quite dry as it was hot as yesterday. So i pick her up and put her in the nearest water i could find, the dogs bucket lol (cue unimpressed dog!) Got all the grass off her and netted (as she was not a happy camper at this point) and put her back into the tank.
Now onto how she got out, she ripped the darn tape!! Fell a good metre or more onto concrete, slithered across said concrete and out onto the lawn, this is where hubby found her and thought she was a snake lol.

Now the tank has extra glass lids, triple taped in the sump inlet/power cord corner, with a very large rock on top just to be sure. The glass lids along the front of the tank also are weighed down lol And as i still had an eel in the tank this morning, i think i won lol

Lesson learnt! When you have an eel and you think you have eel proofed the tank, do a better job LOL
