FIRE EEL! Dose anyone care for them?!


I have a few fire eels and I am currently feeding them live ghost shrimp. But for some reason, where I live lfs are not carrying ghost shrimp any more. I do try to breed the ones I have, but I only have enough to feed my axolotls. So basically I wanna change my fire eels diet. Any suggestion?

They love worms. Black worms for small specimens, earthworms for larger ones.

A good way to feed blackworms is by filling a "betta bowl" with tank water, adding the worms to it, then putting it on its side in the bottom of the tank. The worms will live in there until eaten, without getting into your substrate.

Brilliant idea! I will try that. They just seem to be so spoiled...
