"I own a Spiny Eel, not sure if its African or not, but it is in the spiny eel family. I've become very fond of my eel. He (or she) has sand to burrow in and it isn't deep so I can still usually see him playing. He does fine in higher ph levels so I have him with several African Cichlids, bigger than he can eat! They get along fine. They hardly know each other are in the tank. the cichlids eat off the sand after meals sometimes, but run into him a bit and move on, very quick, and busy! They always make me smile, such busy bodies! I would purchase another eel but I don't think they get along with each other very well, he's only in a 75 gallon. He can be my only eel. its fine, I love having him. He eats blood worms and brine shrimp mostly, I throw in plankton once in awhile. I've had him 2&1/2 years and he is about 8 inches, still growing. If you can have a Spiny Eel I recommend them, they can be very interesting and not too snake- like the way traditional eels are. "
