Vinegar Eels

Okay, I seem to be doing the impossible--killing vinegar eels.  I started 
off with a highly populated starter culture, added it to a 50/50 real 
apple cider vinegar/water, a medium apple.  At first there were scads of 
the things when I first added the started clture but now they are few and 
far between.  The only thing that sticks out in my mind is that I 
midlessly used tap water instead of aquarium water.  Would that hurt the 
culture?  Also there is some mold/scum forming on top--mother of 
vinegar--right?  Also, is darkness critical?  Any help would be 
appreciated as everything that I've read is that these things are the 
easiest live food to culture?  Not so for me
