I have a 72 gallon bowfront tank with 100 pounds of porous live rock. I had a Snowflake Eel for 4 months, then I thought it died. Two months later, he appears out of nowhere about 3-4 inches longer! Has anyone ever experienced this before?

The don't hibernate but it's not uncommon with a the amount of live rock you have for them to find a spot they like inside the rock and only come out at night or to look for food.

We have a 400 G tank & My snowflake eel did not Eat for Over 9 months. Multiple times we thought he was dead and he wasn’t. And then a month or two months later he would pop his head out. But he would never eat. He just ate for the first time, 9 months Later. CRAZY
