Try feeding him with tongs. I do with mine because I have a saddleback clown who loves to steal food

You can try adding garlic it won't hurt them. My new zebra eel is very shy so I have to put his food into a jar and place it at the entrance of the cave so he will eat it. I have to put it into a jar so the other fish will eat the food. He has just started to eat all the food I have placed into the jar. I will begin introducing the same food using tongs. I would suggest feeding your eel at night since they are nocturnal. Eventually you should be able to feed during the day when the eel gets use to his new home.
