Freshwater Eel tank - - - safe decorations? Assistance requested!!


Hey guys! You eel keepers on here already known I'm keen on getting into eels, I was wondering what decor would be best? I want variety, and all decor must be non-abrasive, since I understand they scratch easily, and can develop a fungal or secondary bacterial infection through the break in the eel's skin.

1. I would like variety in decor, and a natural look is what I am shooting for. I know smooth stones are good, what type of stone?

Other eel questions:

2. What medicines are good to have around to immediately treat a fungal and/or bacterial infection? Price isn't of concern in this area.

3. What is a 100% guaranteed eel-liked food that I can start off with, then wean onto frozen foods? Ghost shrimp?

Thanks guys!

I don't get it?!? why are you simply ignoring the last thread you put up about this topic? It has all the same info on these questions now as those then.

Here's the link: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...714&highlight=

And one to get your bearings on what others do with Eels: http://www.youtube.com/results?searc....1.4dliZULxrTI

Watch the videos and look at what the other people are using for decor and feeding and so on.
