Feeding glofish or tetras altho more costly would limit chance of disease.
when i had my eel i would buy about 20 or so feeder goldfish put them in a separate tank fatten them up on good feed for about 2 weeks make sure they were healthy too and then they would get fed to my eel, never once had a problem doing it this way and my eel was a very happy camper
my funny fish story involves my son and an eel at the LFS
my son was watching an eel tank at the LFS
and the owner had just put a bunch of live feeders in the tank and one eel swam up and snatched up the fish in one fall swoop, my son said wow mommy he's a really good magician, i then said huh?
he said "he made that fish disappear really fast" lol
he then ask if there was a magic word to make the fish reappear
