Great, thanks for the info Mily! I see you've updated the common name, is it possible for you to add the scientific name too? It just helps the website link to related spottings more accurately, and makes your spotting more complete :) Thanks!

I saw it in an aquarium in Japan on an island off of Yokohama bay:)

Did you see this in an aquarium by the way? If you did, it'd be great if you could mention that somewhere in the spotting :) Thanks!

This is indeed a garden eel, the spotted garden eel to be more specific! They're so cute, I've seen some while diving before, such lovely fish!
