"We have a couple of striped peacock eels. We also have a dinosaur bichir. Every now and then one of the eels will poke the bichir in the stomach with the tip of its nose and follow it around that way for a few minutes, keeping pace. It looks very funny, but I don't know why it's doing that. Other times, the two eels will chase each other, looping around in circles rapidly, or doing the same thing that they do with the bichir. Anybody else experience this? Do you know what's happening? Are they playing or is it some kind of strange aggression? Because they're peaceful, right? And they leave other fish alone? Sometimes I think they want to put the bichir in its place, like they don't approve of him trying to dominate the tank or something. I also want to say that feeding the eels with a turkey baster works for me, too, as someone mentioned in another post. They like worms a lot."
