I got some live fish called rosies and tried that but he still doesn't want anything to do with them I also got some garlic extreme and injected one of my thawed silver sides with a little of the garlic put it on some tongs and its sitting in front of his face and he still doesnt seem to want it. I got the eel at pet land they said they feed it frozen food or food that was frozen then thawed I just dont want the eel to die I wouldnt be to happy personally its been two days now with out him eating I would think he is getting pretty hungry by now.

It has only been 4 days, give it time. Morays have been known to fast 6 months and if the lfs had fed it previous to purchase you should be ok I take it the eel looks somewhat cylindrical without any sunken areas of the body?...

yea he is pretty fat lol but I actually saw him eating last night I put some silver sides in the tank and he was eating at like 3 in the morning he wont eat unless no one is around lol but thanks for all your help. To anyone who wants to try it injecting silver sides after they are thawed with only a little of garlic extreme seems to work pretty **** well to get carnivors to eat.
