Algea Eating Eel!?

Hi everyone,

I've got a 20gallon tank with 4 mollys(1 male and 3 females all pregnant), a Tire Track Spiny Eel who is currently 12inches long oh and a Kissing gourami about 5 inches long, hes only there because his partner died and he likes the white mollys. Infact I think he thinks he is one! I keep the eel in there to eat the babies from the pregnant mollys for a little excitement for the little guy as he does'nt like being with my other eels in his old 55gal.

Anyway, the mollys all eat the Algea wafers I put once a week to vary their diet a little more along with their blood worms and veggies. I've just put the wafers in and saw the eel poking them so I quickly turned on my webcam but before I could get a pic of him eating one he quickly swallowed the whole thing! I mean I feed him worms and blood worms very day why could he possibly want some nasty veggies! Anyway I got some pics of him eating another one or just about to anyway.

Why is he doing this? Anyone else had this before? I've never seen this before maybe I should try it with my eel tank and see what they think.
