Electric eels bound for Belle Isle Aquarium

Its not the cost of an electric eel thats the problem. Its the transportation.

Come to think of, you could say the same thing about some of the new tank decorations at the Belle Isle Aquarium. But those arrived in the back of an 18-foot box truck.

The electric eels had to fly.

There are two of them, each about 2 feet long. Our apologies for spoiling the surprise, but theyll make their Detroit debut Saturday, the latest lap in the aquariums marathon swim back from near-abandonment.

The truckload of decorations tankscaping, as its called in the aquarium world wont be displayed
