    Check out SpinelessScales on youtube. He is also SunnyRollins on the NANFA forum, and he has had some success keeping American eel long term. It was a learning experience for him, but he may have the best advice.
    Here's one of his threads on NANFA:

    Anyway, the biggest issue is preventing escape. Tight fitting and heavy lids are a must unless you want a dried up eel on your floor one morning. They are no doubt nocturnal. Your eel will likely stay buried until the lights go out or it smells a meal. No doubt a cool critter. Keeps us updated.

    This post is a bit old, but we've been going over these in my fishery class. Here is some info.
    .In North America they range from Florida to up past Maine, this should give you some information on their water conditions (Very durable fish)
    .They are very slow growing, females are larger with a max size of one meter. For a female to get that large it will take about 15 years. Males are about half the size
    .They breed in salt water and live in fresh
    .As far as food goes the will eat anything meaty, dead or alive

    If you have any more questions I have a whole pile of notes
    "It's not a Nemo fish, it's a CLOWN FISH!!!"
