fake eels

no these are predatory fishes that will consume anything that fits in there mouths...they like to dig in the substrate so nothing to jagged and coarse...they come from streams in southeast asia...like thailand...

depends on what you mean by smaller eels. If you're talking smaller mouths, then maybe purple spaghetti eels, you can get them on Aquarium Supplies, Pet Supplies and Pond Supplies by That Fish Place - That Pet Place, but they grow to be pretty long and will still eat small fish, but if you have very big guppies they may not be a problem. For any eel, sand is the best substrate because they have no scales and can easily be scratched by sharp gravel. The next eel like fish that I can think of would be a bichir, but they may be predatory to small fish, idk.
