I purchased a Snowflake eel (?) 5 days ago, without knowing what kind of eel it was. The eel is 18 inches long. He is in a predicament and I'm wondering if it is an emergency. He attempted to eat a little stubby gray algae eater!! He can't swallow it. It is in past his jaws except for a small piece of tail. Plus he is in fresh water!!?

-Stocking --------------------------------- 7 angels, 1 gourmie, 1 puffer, 1 Chinese algae eater, 2 other catfish and now 1 little not 2 algae eaters
-Equipment ------------------------------ 6,500 luman led light,
-Tank size -------------------------------- 90 gallon
-Setup ------------------------------------ FRESH WATER (some salt)
-Feeding (how much, how often, what kind)
-Acclimation process -------------------- temp adjustment is it
-Nuisance algae ------------------------- na
-What has/have you changed recently -- after fish were killed off, it was a guppy tank until 3 months ago
-Water source ---------------------------- tap
-Water changing process ---------------- 10 gallons once a month
-Filtration --------------------------------- 200 gph canister with uv light

There are some freshwater snowflake eels.
Find out from the dealer what it is.
If it is not a freshwater eel; +1 to the above.

One thing for sure.
Make sure you know exactly what you are putting in your tank.
That goes for livestock, additives, substrate, everything.
