I've only had a tire track eel for 1 week, and it already eats frozen bloodworms and is hand fed, and it comes out to see you and beg for food! It seems very peaceful and leaves all the other fish, including neons, completely alone. So far, it's a good pick for some interest in the tank!

I just bought two eels at walmart, Zeek and Sleek. I love to sit and watch them! I could'nt believe it, they got along so well with my other fish. The only bad thing about it is I hardly ever get to see them!

Squirmy is a 7 year old tiretrack eel and the only reason i have a fishtank. He is very friendly and will lie in my hand to eat. He fins at you when you come to the tank and when not fed fast enough (a little bit spoilt) will chase his own tail to get attention. These are great fish - they "tame" easily and can provide hours of entertainment. They are easy to look after and fairly disease resistant. I recommend them to all fish lovers

I have had two spiny eels for about 2 years now. They used to get along well but in time one grew much bigger and started chasing the other. Nothing serius happened but constantly chases the smaller one. But interestingly not when eating...They both feed head to head. One other problem is that they have not been eating something other than bloodworms(live or frozen). And time to time i see them trying to hunt down some little tetras which they live together with. But generally they are quite and peaceful. One of the fishes i can recommend.

I own a Spiny Eel, not sure if its African or not, but it is in the spiny eel family. I've become very fond of my eel. He (or she) has sand to burrow in and it isn't deep so I can still usually see him playing. He does fine in higher ph levels so I have him with several African Cichlids, bigger than he can eat! They get along fine. They hardly know each other are in the tank. the cichlids eat off the sand after meals sometimes, but run into him a bit and move on, very quick, and busy! They always make me smile, such busy bodies! I would purchase another eel but I don't think they get along with each other very well, he's only in a 75 gallon. He can be my only eel. its fine, I love having him. He eats blood worms and brine shrimp mostly, I throw in plankton once in awhile. I've had him 2&1/2 years and he is about 8 inches, still growing. If you can have a Spiny Eel I recommend them, they can be very interesting and not too snake- like the way traditional eels are.
