I once had a zig zag eel and I fed it stuff right, and like it would eat it. Then one night it didn't eat so i fed it more, but it wouldn't eat. So then I called my mommy and she fed it and it still wouldn't eat. Then mommy said it was dead. I got a gold fishy instead. His name is elmo and I feed him hot dogs for food.

I got a big one a few days ago that's about the same size as my fire eel. I had noticed that he had a big stomache. I thought it was dropsy but fortunately it was constipation. I used a handful of epsom salt in a 55G tank and now he's fine. The epsom salt didn't seem to really do anything but a couple days later he got fatter then he pooped it out. Now he's less active than he was when he was constipated (odd?) and he is good friends with the fire eel. I though the fire eel would be mean to him but they lay together under peices of driftwood. I got mine for $10 -- it was worth it. My fire eel was $30 but it was still worth it :-P

I have two peacock eels. One stays burrowed in the sand/gravel beneath some rocks, but the other swims around alot. "She" is named Derva and her tankmate is Doug. "He" just waits for the bloodworms to settle, then he grabs a bite. I only see him if I do a water exchange, or replant what he dislodges burrowing. He has grown @an inch in the 2mos. here, so he is eating well, despite the fact that he doesn't swim about,and "dance" like his tankmate.

My tire track is 7in. and is my most social and is my favorite fish. He ate blood worms from my hand the second day I had him. I have him in a 55 gal., when he gets too big I'll sell him for big bucks at my local fish store.

I have one zigzag eel, it is EXTREMELY aggresive. It has already eaten three of those little sucker thingies since last January. I have it in a 30 gallon tank right now but I have to upgrade soon. It is only about 6 inchs but it's so aggresive that I have to move it into a bigger tank because I have seen it attacking my goldfish once or twice.

I just got a peacock eel (at least I think). It is either that or a zigzag eel. Everytime I look for it, it is always so hidden in my rocks or plants I couldn't find it. An hour ago I thought it was dead because I couldn't find it. I just decided like five minutes ago that I'm going to hand feed it.

I've had a peacock eel for about 1 week now, no troubles at all. Mr.wiggles hasn't jumped out or hurt himself. He loves when I hand him live black worms and he will take frozen bloodworms ocssionally, also freeze dried tubifex worms. People who want this fish shouldn't keep it with robust tank mates and should have a rather large tank, maybe 20 gallons or more. These eels are very entertaining and will take food from your hand. It only took me 2 days for him to get used to hand feeding. You must have your heater on always, they like warm water. One more important thing, they like to jump so keep your tank covered, but Mr.wiggles has not wanted to jump yet.
