Carlos, what are your exact water parameters and how long has your tank been set up?

I just read that these eels need to be maintained at a middling salinity of around SG 1.010 and are prone to stress. When stressed they don't eat. You are trying to keep two different species of fish whose water requirements vary significantly. You're not going to be able to keep these two species together with any success. I don't know how attached you are to your oscars, how keen you are on keeping this eel, if you are able to set up another tank for your eel, etc.

You already know that a 20g is never going to be a healthy long term solution for two oscars. I can understand wanting to keep an eel but maybe this time you return him and when you are able to set up a proper tank for a "freshwater" moray you can then try keeping one?
