I just saw my friends tank, he put a baby snowflake eel in a 12 gallon. I told him how crazy this was but he didnt budge. how long can he keep the eel in there? should the baby (8") even be in there now?

Maybe if this was a 20L I'd agree it would work for a few months, but no, this is a 12 gallon. That's not enough for a snowflake. I wouldn't even quarantine one in that. 8" of fish on a 12 gallon bioload isn't going to work out well for anyone.

I only had 1, 6-inch eel get out on me, and I went to bed at around midnight, and found it on the floor at 4:30 A.M. dead. I put it back in the tank, but it was gone. I have heard from others that say that they have saved an eel several hours later, but I can only speak from my own experience.
