I am feeding my eel frozen blood worms because it seems he won't eat pellets, and I don't think frozen blood worms have a lot of nutrients for my eel. What else do zig zag eels eat?

Could get black worms, cut up earthworms, and Vera bites.

Pretty much anything mentioned above. I have found the frozen bloodworms to be a decent staple if they refuse all other food, but it is definitely best to get them eating other foods.

Red wigglers are a really good option because they can stay alive under water for a few days.

How big is the eel?
