    I purchased 1 yellow spiny tail eel yesterday and today I fed bloodworms and I hand gave them to him and when I was watching him I saw him slowly creep toward the back part of my tank he had been hiding behind a piece of drift wood a the back of my tank and just before I fed he came to the front and laid down guessing he was hungry I fed a good amount right next to him I also scared off all the other fish so he had them all to himself. Should I be concerned or am I stressing over nothing the bumblebee goby I bought also the day I bought the eel ate today. Tell me what you think.

    I had a tiretrack eel that took almost 2 weeks to eat. Then he ate like a pig all the time.
