Fire eel

I have had 2 fire eels in the past......the first would actually stick its head out of the water to eat earthworms from my hand.....it grew to 18 long before eventually passing away for no reason that I could identify.......super fun fish for my entire family......the next one I bought when it was an adult.....maybe 12 long....it never ate anything and died within a month of hiding out not eating......

I am trying it again.....I got an eel that is about 6 long.... looks healthy after a week in the tank even though it hasn't eaten anything yet......

Any tips on feeding these guys? I don't want this guy to have the same fate as my second one......
