Snowflake eel

Hi,

Every other day when I feed my fish, my snowflake eel comes out and moves all over the tank. It's most probably hungry, but most of what I have read suggests to feed it unyil it won't eat any more twice a week or every 3 days. I do have inverts and small fish with it, so I don't want it to get too hungry... What would you recommend?

Thanks!

Ben

I'd feed it a shrimp or some krill everyday so it don't get hungry and eat your livestock

I've had a snowflake for about a year. Never ate any livestock. Not even my cuc. But maybe I was lucky

If you have a snowflake, ther are 2 things you can count on, he will eat your tank mates, and you will find him in the floor at some point, been there done that a couple of times
