"I recently bought two very small black spotted eels for my 20 gal tank (sales person didnt say anything about them being intollerant of one another or that they would be needing a larger tank fairly quickly but then they were suppose to have been tire track eels). One (about 3 and a half inches) is flourishing, eating freeze dried tubifex worms and ocasionally sniffing out whatever flake the lace cat misses, active and even swims up to my hand whenever I'm near the tank. The smaller of the two ( about an inch smaller) however seeems to be failing, interested in the same foods but does not eat the way the larger eel does, seems listless and has darkened considerabley even though we have moved him temporarily into the 10 gal with the guppies and added a second side filter to keep amonia levels down. There are no obviouse signs of ich or bacterial infection, could the darkening be stress related? "
