try using some bits of white bait with long tweezers at first and then shorten tweezers untill you use your fingers over a period of time

Agree with Johnno's advice.
Also at 13cm your eel is just a glorified earthworm that you are trying to hand feed. Like all juvenile animals, it thinks everything is trying to eat it (hence the flight response under the substrate) - with some extra size and time will come more confidence.
