well I found out that you have to have a 50 gallon tank for them and they should be kept pretty much by themselves with a sand base and lots of caves and the top has to be hole free otherwise they will get out. They are nocturnal they are a pretty sweet fish they eat blackworms and earthworms krill and ocean plankton they are fresh and tropical. So I will wait for awhile to get one and Slinky goes bye bye tommorow. Thanks for the awesome links INNES!

Here ya go - taken from post "slinky"

I once bought what was sold as a "clown eel" but I cant even remember what pattern it had as it died within a day
but it was a "spiney eel" from the family Mastacembelidae - not actially a true eels as they have pectoral fins

Peacock eel

another handy peacock eel link
a handy spiney eel link

Don't listen to the guy in the fish shop, he knows nothing and has proven that on a few occasions - I wouldn't even talk to him as he is always giving you false information, people like him should get shut down.
the peacock eel is much more suitable for your tank than a moray.
