Doctor Phlox kept an osmotic eel on board during his assignment to Enterprise, and it could often be seen in sickbay in a container of water. During their first mission in April of 2151, it was used to cauterize Captain Archer's leg wound. (ENT: "Broken Bow")
Doctor Phlox's osmotic eel was a female, and he offered to give her to E'lis, a doctor on a deuterium mining colony in 2152, but she joked she wouldn't know what to feed her. Phlox then explained to E'lis that the eel's feeding needs were relatively modest, as it only required a nutrient broth every three or four days. He further noted that while they were working, they required their nutrient broth even less, as they usually ingested a little blood while healing an injured artery. (ENT: "Marauders")
