More information for you when I talked to Bettababy.:)
Depending on what exact species it turns out to be, an eel that will grow to be at least 24 inches could eat the other eel once it's bigger. How big of a tank is it in and what kind of substrate are you using? Without sand to bury itself in, and lots of "holes" and caves for hiding, any moray will stress to death quick. A moray eel, (or any eel) in gravel can sustain a lot of physical injury... scratches and such, which leads to secondary infections quickly, and eels you can't use just any type of med to treat... they're scaleless, so sensitive to everything.
And with the morays, the water temp has to be about 80. If the temp is not warm enough, they won't eat. If nitrate levels go above 40, they won't eat. It is not the easiest fish to keep. If the fire eel is bigger than the moray, it will pick on the moray, too.
