Anybody have experience with American Eels? They're not the prettiest fish, but I've always been interested in them.

Yeah, I understand your opinion. It's just that I've been desperate to find out some info on these, specifically gender information. Sorry.

Well, your best bet to gather info on American eels would be an aquarium that has some. They would have the husbandry down and would be able to tell you about gender info as well. Other then that with a quick search I found:

It doesn't seem illegal to capture and keep one of these, considering that they are a commercially managed and recreational caught fish, but always best to find out if permits are required in your state.

Ok thanks for your information. I had one before when I was younger, but It got too large so I'm trying to fix that. Anyways, thank you for the advice.
