In the wild, eels eat such animals as octopuses and fish. In captivity, though, eels will eat almost any meaty food including:

-live fish


-squid and

-chopped fish

In the wild, squid is a delicacy, so be sure to give your eel some once in a while.

Also, be careful when feeding them! Eels have poor eyesight, and might mistake your fingers for a tasty morsel of food!

Ells eat small fish,insect,plantsin the ocean.They are also found in the Atlantic Ocean,pacific,and Indian ocean.

eel's eat other sea creature smaller then them, they are omnivores so they also eat plants. It depends on the eels...most are bottom feeders...which means they eat anything that drops on the bottom of the tank...some eat feeder,glassworms,tubifex worms, plankton and krill. Freswater eels can be notoriuosly hard to get to eat.
