Usually means you have to many nutrients in your water. What are your water parameters, what type of lighting, and how long are they on? What's your water temp, how often do you feed your fish, etc.

Don't have a water tester yet getting one next time I got to the pet store. I feed my snowflake eel once a day I piece of shrimp and my fish about twice a week. My lighting is in the pic.
