-party ok i wlii start at the begining

during christmas my sister bought her fiance a tank upgrage form a 55 to a 200. so of course i was put incharge. i went got the new tank (detriot) and set it up in ohio. that was after taking it to saginaw for the big day:rolleyes: and as you all know a 200 gallon glass tank is not very light. after it was all set up i was still feeding his old tank and noticed a small chain link eel had gone missing and figued he got to close to his puffer during feeding. i fogot about the twenty dollar fish and continued my job untill hes tank settled (a amonia spike never happened do to the cured lr that we got at a Lfs) and we added his puffer and clown trigger to the 200 on friday. now the crazy part. i was cleaning the old canister filter that i was putting off and when i opened it a live chain like eel squgled out thats right live after what i think is two weeks in a fillter runnig and then not runnig so i did the ovious and stole him and put him in my 90 gallon. i did this like twenty min ago and figue it needed to be posted.

Yes i believe it. Back in 1990 i had a snowflake that did the same thing except the most it was in the magnum filter was 3 days tops so that long is crazy. you've got one hardy eel and possible one guilty conscience to come except it sounds like you earned it..

I know you didn't know but you do now and it was his. I would call and say i found it and keeping it for the hard work I did. You don't want it coming back to bite you later ofcourse you could say you went and bought one. I would tell him and if he is appreciative of all you did he'd want you to have it.
