A couple of weeks ago I acquired a Spaghetti Eel for my son. It is in one of my 20 gal tanks and has been there fine ever since.
We very rarely see it except soemtimes at night wriggling around the tank.
Does anyone have any information on these as I can't find anything anywhere.
He calls it ' Betty Spaghetti' and is very fond of it. it is about 3 inches long and transparent.Very thin like spaghetti !!

Thanks anyone

Thanks for the help but none of the eels I spent an hour looking at match this one at all.

I was reading one articel which tel;ls me that the ' American Eel ' at 2.4 inches metamorphosises into a transparent state and is then a Glass Eel for a certain stage in its life. Then it changes colour when becomes an Elver.

I was wondering if this may be it as none has any ideas.

But ' Betty ' is certainly happy swimming around her tank at night and is around 3 inches at the moment.

Anyone know anything about the American Eel ?
THIS ONE has stumped me .
