thekoimaden: No the tiretrack eel is fresh it mentioned they benefit from a little marine salt but I have done a lot of research and everywhere else including the people who had them as babies said fresh. He is also to old and is thriving where he is. Also its common for then to grow 3 feet in the wild but in captivity rarely reach over a foot. He is 5 years old now and doing wonderful but thank you for the concern. Freshwater eels are my favorite fish and I have quite a few types.

Could I do a couple cories, one or two chichlids and maybe a few guppies if they don't get eaten lol. I want fish that would be on the ground some in the middle and some on the surface of the tank. If you know what I mean.

If your going to do cichlids do all cichlids their hardy but best alone. You could get a cool pleco to go with and you would pretty much have all the tank levels covered.

In short, No African cichlids are suitable for the tank, it is simply too small for them long term.

Oh, don't know if they're African or not, what about a shelldweller tank? They're tiny cichlids that live in empty snail shells. Pretty awesome. Don't know about keeping them with other fish, they strike me as timid though.

Yeah, shellies are generally recommended for a species-only set-up.
