Thanks, it should look even better once the plants grow and fill in.

Only larger fish are compatible. I haven't completely made up my mind yet, but I was considering some mollies, that way there would be a constant supply of live food for the eels.

This was the basic idea for the cave. A space under for the eels, with a planter's box on top for the various crypts that I planted. I used lace rock to hide the plexiglass cave, and placed various anubias and ferns all around to help further hide it.
