snowflake eel question

Hey guys I just got a snowflake eel about a day ago or so. I was told he was to be fed two times a day. But sense Igot him he doesnt seem like he wants to eat at all. I think he took a bight out of the silversides igot him because their was a peace missing out of him lol but i was just wondering if it was because he was still very new to the tank or if maybe their was another problem i dont know about just yet all the levels in the tank are good any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.

Perform a "Search' on this forum as this has been discussed before I believe. Twice a week is plenty.

well if you have only had him for 2 days.. im sure he had ate from the lfs before you got him... so its possible he just isnt ready to eat yet.

one more question.. what was the lfs feeding him? goldfish or something? if he is use to moving food, you may want to try a ghost shrimp, or a molly of some sort, see if he goes after it.. that will tell you really quickly if he is ok or not lol
