I have to say that at first I was iffy about this as my wife surprised me with it. She bought it for me as a gift on a trip to the pet store. Then I had him for a few days and observed him. He was pretty cool how he swan around. His name was Falcor after the Never Ending Story character as I felt he resembled him. He was mostly active when it was evening and you had to watch him without him really knowing. These guys are available at most pet stores now and are called "dragon" or "dinosaur" eels. The actual name is rarely how they are labeled in the pet stores. A word of caution is that they can and will eat any fish that fit in their mouths. It may not happen right away, but it will eventually f you are not careful about tank mates.
