Sorry, my comment was about how far wrong they can be... nothing to do directly with your eel.
I've seen videos of eels and I can see why they would say that, they love to burrow and that uproots everything... as long as that is the only issue.
What you might try is planting little "gardens". Seeing as they burrow, perhaps you can place rings around a small area to put plants into. There are ABS couplers (see picture) for anything from 1" up to 6" or so. If you placed one of these on the bottom and filled it with the substrate material and planted in it you might find that Mr Eel doesn't get to the roots. You may have to shave the coupler down so it is not as wide as the substrate is deep so you don't see it, but it might let you plant anything. They have smooth edges so if you do try this and do have to shave one, be sure to smooth the edges so the eels doesn't get injured.
