Does anyone know what kind of freshwater eel this is?
I ordered a "lesser spiny eel", otherwise known as a peacock eel,, from a aquatic store online. Well said eel got here this morning and he is definitely not a peacock eel. I cant even find anything remotely similar to him. He is a juvenile, about 4 inches long. He is currently in a holding tank.
Can anyone identify this eel? I've reached out to the company but have not heard from them yet.
It seems like I can only add one picture, but his tail has some brown markings. He is mostly black with minimal markings. He light a faint stripe going through his eye and a light band on top.

Here is an additional picture showing the coloration on his tail.
