I have a 29 gal
. freshwater tank. My first one. I have 3 goldfish which I will be giving away. My keeper fish are a peacock eel and an albino bristlenose placo, I will be getting others, though not sure yet what I will get. I have a piece of driftwood in the tank that I am waiting for it to sink down. I have fake plants and am using sand substrate. I have a hiding place for my eel. But he likes to hide in the sand. That placo loves the driftwood (so do the goldfish). I am eight weeks into my tank adventure.
I find the goldfish annoying because they eat the fish flakes so quickly. I was worried my eel was not going to be able to get anything to eat so I got some worms. I finally saw the eel chowing down on a worm tonight. I am afraid it is too big for the eel. My husband was teasing me and told me to make sure it doesn't choke. The trouble is I have make sure they are too big for the goldfish, and not too big for the eel. The eel is about 5- 6 inches long. The largest goldfish is about 2" . Does anyone have any ideas?
