Help my Zebra Moray aka Eel Diseases w/ pics

Here are pics of my zebra moray which seems very unusual. She hasnt eaten in 6 days. Water parameters fine and the larger eel in the tank is not suffering from any ailments. If anyone can help please post here or email me wrightmatt@optusnet.com.au, i feel she is beginning to deteriorate..!!

Stripes, we need more info. What are "fine" parameters? What are you trying to feed it? How long have you had it? Have you added anything different or made any large changes? All of these things are taken into consideration. HTH

Ive had it for 8 months. I feed it prawns (shrimp) and various whitebaits. Nitrite - nil, nitrate - nil, ammonia - nil. Ive made no changes to the tank whatsoever regarding bioloads, meds etc.

Thanks

6 days is not a long time for an eel to go without eating .... mine will periodically go a week or two and then start eating again just like usual.

Is the eel being dominated by any other eels in the tank?

Im sure he will be fine i cant think of anything why he wouldnt eat. He is very large so im sure he might be just full or is trying to lose some weight 8O
