    lovely eels those... would love them, but haven't got the required LR and "caves" for them to be happy.

    Why did you remove the eels from the ocean if you have no plans to keep them? By removing them you must now take responsibility for their well-being. You have doomed their life to one in captivity as it will be extremely irresponsible to return them to the ocean as they have now become exposed to other diseases not in our part of the ocean. Returning them could have serious consequences.

    MCM read these threads and it is issues like this that will have an impact on future legislation regarding collection permits and the hobby.

    Whilst I can understand the excitement, enthusiasm and thrill of catching the eels, in doing so one overlooks the long term impact. I really hope you manage to find a home for the eels and hope this is a lesson learnt not to remove stock from the ocean without first having a home for them.

    Look man, I do have an awesome predator tank which these guys are in along with other species of eel! I have been doing this for a few years now, I know what I'm doing! Just thought I'd offer them to other predator enthuisiasts! I am more than happy to keep them in my tank! Don't just ASSUME!

    more than happy to keep and intend to keep are two very different things. If someone is looking for an eel then they can ask sponsers, friends etc. Catching two eels becasue someone out there MIGHT want them is not the right way of doing it.
