Question Vegetarian eel?

Hey everyone
I feed my snowflake eel at least once a week, as I was directed to. But not even 2 days after I give him a hefty meal where he is stuffed and refuses to eat more, he is lunging for fish food. I feed my other 3 fish some flake food, but the eel has seemed to take a liking to it.
He scavenges for every last flake and scares off the fish to get them. I tried feeding him small meals throughout the week so he wouldnt eat the flakes, but he does anyway.
I dont want to feed him too much because I dont want him getting fat and too big for the tank and more poop and nitrates.
Is it okay for him to be eating these flakes? What should I do?
