Dino Eel looking for good home


Just thought I would post this here if anyone would have any interst in my "dino" before I take him to world of fish. He has become too big for my tanks over the past 3 years that i have had him. The picture isnt the best but i would guess that he is about 7 inchs long and pretty fat Sad to part with him but its time for him to find another home and I would feel SO MUCh better of someone from this forum took him rather then a LOF..

Lets just say that anything it can fit in its mouth it will eat. Like last night i got 5 silver mollies that i thought were pretty big. Well the next moring only 1 was still there and that one had bite marks across its body

I have one of these and have had for about 5-6 months and he was 2 inches when I got him and now he is 8 inches and really fat. He eats live goldfish and one time he ate 5.

Im not sure what congo's are but like its been said it will try to eat anything that it can get its mouth over. Right now he is in the tank with tiger barbs and they get along fine. He use to live with my bala and knife fish but since then they have both moved on

I want to get a school of these as the focal point for my 90 gallon so it may be a non starter if he can snack on them.

Yea i dont think he would play well with them. Sad though. He was like the 2nd fish i bought 3 years ago when first getting into this and of course broke the first rule of not researching the fish before you get them. Now 3 years later hes a killer
