    (the title is supposed to be "An eel") I was on my boat today in the Long Island Sound and a member on here was there with me collecting grass shrimp next to my boat. He also collected this, which I studied when I got him home and I think he in an elver or baby eel.
    They grow to about 4' long. I was studying him in a small tank that was suspended and I think he escaped.
    Oh well, if I start seeing my fish disappear, I know he lived. :eek:

    I may find him in my bath tub.

    The little sneak got sucked up in one of these as I was taking a little water out of his container, then he wouldn't come out, but I think he came out later when I used that in my reef.
    He thinks he is smarter than me. OK, so I guess he is. But they spawn in freshwater so in 5 or 6 years, I may find him in my bath tub
