No he just likes the spot. Eels like to get into the smallest of spaces.

My eel swam into my filter And died. Eels are tricky due to their intelligent nature and curiosity. Great animals. Too shy for me though

If you give them many hiding places, they might come out more often.

That's just too many decorations IMO. Never had a peacock eel. Do they stay small?

Peacock eels are one of the smallest eels and can be kept in tanks 10 gallons and up.

They live near the substrate but kribs are only aggressive when they are spawning.

They should be fine as long as you don't have a pair

Sounds great but gbrs are very delicate. I'd advise getting Bolivian rams
