Eel Bucket

I have the same set up. The eels wont die if I put ice on them correct?
They look a little frozen even though I only put a small amount of ice on them.
Keeping them drained and some moist burlap on them.

We're sorta like 7-Eleven. We're not always doing business, but we're always open.

I run my ice under water before putting it on the eels so they don't get stuck to the ice. I learned that the hard way.

I use 2 buckets. 1 with the eels and ice with holes to drain the water/slime and the other to catch the water/slime.

Conservatism is not about leaving people behind. Conservatism is about empowering people to catch up, to give them tools at their disposal that make it possible for them to access all the hope, all the promise, all the opportunity that America offers. - Marco Rubio

Put some nuts and bolts in from the first level (not the bottom) that will support a regular shiner bucket with small holes on the bottom. Put the ice in the shiner bucket and let it melt over the eels.

Not only will they stay cool and moist, and not freeze - they will darken up good too

I've kept eels alive 3+ weeks in one of these
