"We bought a Peacock Eel about a year ago. He quickly burried into the rocks, and for the first 3 months or so we would only catch glimpses of him (head or tail sticking out of the rocks). Then he dissapeared for 8 or 9 months, during which time we ceased to feed him as we figured he had escaped and been consumed by a dog. He just re-appeared 2 weeks ago and has enjoyed swimming above ground every day since. He even plays in the bubbles and swims around during the day. He does not seem stressed, but I am not sure what to think now. I have been feeding him fresh frozen brine shrimp every couple of days (now that I know he is around). The tank is home to several tropical semi-aggressive fish and two two large plecostomuses (sucker fish?). Does anyone have any thoughts on the best way to feed him? Also, he seems to enjoy one farily exposed rock, and I am wondering if we should find him a better hiding spot. Any thoughts? Thanks!"
