Hi Guy's
Thought I would pop up a quick little video of our tank, makes the loungeroom a nice place to spend time,
we also have a Red Sea Reefer XXL next to it, (That will be getting replaced in a few months (New Tank on order) by a nearly 9x3x3ft reef tank)

Outstanding mate. How old are the eels and what are you feeding them? Very cool use of the pipe as a framework. Do you have a video of how that went together?

The Eels are about 8yrs old I spose now, they eat anything and everything, the 3 white eyed eat pellets and squid, fish, octopus and the big fella eats everything bar pellets lol
If you go through my Youtube videos I think there are a few videos of how I went through the PVC, I have attached one to give you an idea

How much of a hazard does putting your arm in the tank for maintenance represent given the bite those guys are capable of?
hey mate, you get to know their personality to a degree, we normally feed him and then do any work inside the tank once thats done, the tank requires minimal to no interference but on the odd occassion when placing corals etc you just have to make sure you know where he is, I have a prodding pole I spose I would call it, and I just gently nugde him away if needed, he will let you pat him eveynow and then, so pretty cool all in all
(I have never been tagged by him either)

Thanks. Yeah I wondered if they became acoustomed to you. I purposely didn鈥檛 say tame. Feeding first makes sense. Spectacular animals to watch and yours look to be in excellent condition.

We like to ensure our animals are kept in good condition, and I think it shows :) so thank you for saying that, its feeding time soon lol
