I'll hand feed my eel once and a while. Not so much anymore when he thought my finger was a silverside.

The morays are notoriously near sighted. As a diver, I had a thing for feeding morays in the wild. Still have all my fingers, but I would let the food loose in front of their nose and get out of the way. My old lion fish also had some vision issues, so used some forceps to feed him.

Yea I use a feeding stick to give him his food now. He has calmed down a lot when taking food. Used to take it like he hasn't eaten in a month.

I hand feed my snowflake eel! Oh, and if I don't have enough characters, I just put a bunch of periods, but it makes me look like I'm making fun of the person.....
