I bought a little senegal today, kind of on a whim and something dawned on me as I watched him swimming around. I know that Ropefish, eels, and other like bodied serpentine fish are notorious escape artists, do I need to worry about this Sengal getting out? I have a glass lid with the typical 2” gap on the back.

Yes, they have been known to escape from tanks that don't have lids. Maybe find a way to cover the 2" gap just in case.

Thanks, I have some plastic pieces meant to cover that gap somewhere in the depths of my shed. I’ll have to launch an expedition to find them.

also is best to use sand and not gravel for the substrate, just in case you did not know this
