I have a 55g with a moonlight gourami, a dwarf gourami, a pleco, a red oscar (6"ish) and a new addition, a 7-8" striped peacock eel. The LFS fed the eel on bloodworms, but I am unsure on how to feed them to the eel. I can take a pinch of thawed bloodworms and literally place them on the eel's nose (very calm fish!) and yet he won't touch them. I could try the turkey baster option I've heard about, but my main concern is keeping the Oscar away! If I just leave the worms on the bottom of the tank, the eel doesn't touch them.
I go to sleep and wake up, the worms are gone, but there's no telling whether the pleco or the oscar found them during the night instead of the eel. How should I go about feeding the eel and making sure he a) accepts the food and b, can get to it?
