The Museum

The Spotted Garden Eel can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:

"Spotted garden eels get their name from the black spots on their otherwise white bodies. They nest in the sandy seafloor and poke their heads out to catch the plankton drifting in the current. They're rather shy, as they quickly dart back into their hole at the slightest hint of danger."


Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:

"I got a spotted garden eel! Who'll water its garden now?"
