Hi! I had a snowflake eel for quite awhile and they are so cool! Since you have him eating now I would turn him loose in the tank and let the eel find a cave for his home and this will help in not stressing the eel! It is really neat to watch them stick their head and part of their body out and look around!
I fed my eel twice a week with raw shrimp, scallop, clam, etc. Just put a chunk in with a tweezer and the eel would grab it and swallow it down! I usually could tell when he was hungry as he would move over the LR
just like a snake and you knew he was hunting! He never bothered my fish or inverts at all. If you keep them well fed, they will not bother anything in your tank and I believe they won't try to escape either! I had the back of my tank opened and it never did jump out. I know many say they are quite the escape artist but in my experience if they are well fed and have a nice cave for a home they stay put!
This is quite an awesome specimen and beautifully marked and alot of fun to feed! JMO Johnny
