I don't believe the fish is his, but I do believe it's his photo (which is why I added his name for the photo credit).

Why do you ask?

It is a nice shot and a beautiful animal. I was looking into eels for a while and now had seen one with so much white color like that one. Would probably be way to large then I could keep in my system, or any I will have in the next 2 years, but maybe one day.(Perhaps when I could afford something that beautiful as well.)

I also wanted to ask if he knew which species it was or if there was a name for that particular pattern if it is an odd ball.

Hi Jon- I took that shot at a friends place- I'll ask him about it. As I recall it was a pretty big eel but it was quite a while ago and memory isn't what it used to be I'll get back to you when I get an answer.
