A peacock eel is not appropriate for a 5 gallon tank, or a 10 gallon tank.

Your eel probably bailed on the tank and was picked up by a cat. They are excellent escape artists, and in my experience escape artists are much more inclined to bail from a tank that is too small.
125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

Yeah, that is true enough. It was an experiment more than anything. He was happy enough teasing the Betta but when the pebbles went in... that was it for him. I never saw him after that.

Anyway, he is departed and I Did mention that mistakes were made. He would have ended up in my 40B to grow out but we never had the chance to discuss that...

(However, readers should not take my cavalier reply in any way as a denial of the basic bad judgement in putting the eel into the little tank.)
