Lovely try-out of my eel-tender names, Alex! I agree that 'glass' isn't ideal; a quick trawl (ha) of collective nouns for eels produces swarm, fry, bed, congress, wisp, draft, array, seething. 'Fry' is an East Asian collective term for glass eels; Elver, Fry, Grig is nicely alphabetical and monosyllabic.
