Nice pick up. I remember when he got that guy as a contaminant. Excited to watch you grow it out.

Ahh, it's always nice to see a Gymnothorax polyuranodon. Sorry but I'm gonna derail this thread slightly and ask you how your experience with him has been?

I'm going to further derail it by going on a rant about why everyone should own one.

They're friggin awesome. They're genuine freshwater moray eels, so unlike all of the faux eels you get in freshwater, this one actually exhibits true eel behaviors. Both of mine come out at night to eat pellets, and it's amazing how snake like they move. They're also very particular about how they eat, as they'll move from their normal hiding spot to a new one that's closer to the food, so they can eat, rather than just going towards the food. Both of them typically stick their heads out of the hiding spots and watch what's going on in the tank, which is really interesting to watch. And when they do finally come out of hiding, they don't ever sit still. They're either hidden or they're moving. Having a 2+ foot eel fly around your tank is quite the spectacle. And finally, they're completely peaceful. I've not had them once try to eat, or attack a fish, and they've never even shown anything close to aggression towards a tankmate. It's the perfect predatory/monster fish; it looks mean but behaves like a dream.

Sorry if this seamed scattered, but thoughts just kept coming to me.
