Eels eat...

Just got some eels set up in a low salinity brackish tank (spec. gravity runnin' about 1.005) and I've been feeding them freeze-dried bloodworms. Thing of it is, most of the puffers and the archer eat it all before the eels get it. They sometimes come out for it, but I know they are nocturnal.

Will they take shrimp pellets? I am in a bad location, and there is only one pet store in my town. It doesn't carry specialty frozen bloodworms, and I don't care to feed the live ones if I can get away with it.

Any sugguestions would be most apreciated.

Thanks,
lashilia

I did some research on the net for you. Eel's apparently need to be fed live foods. Blood worms, various other worms, ghost shrimp, small feeder fish, etc...

Here is the link I was working off of: http://www.aquariumfish.net/catalog_...spiny.htm#top2

Feeding tips are about halfway down the page.
