Take a straw and cut a v in the end . Stick some krill, scallop, table shrimp, silverslide and stick it in the end of the cut straw. ( not all at once of course )I would just try one of those one time a day for 3-4 days. If that doesn't work get him a small feeder shrimp or small chromis or damsel. Mine has only eaten twice zonce krill and the second time a damsel. It's very tricky feeding these guys.

Okay. Instead of a straw can I use feeder tongs? I would get him a chromi in a heartbeat and just start him on live food but Idk if I can get a chromi small enough for him. He's just a hair bigger than the baby chromis in my 90 gallon haha.

I would give the silverslides a shot first. I'm going to try them next feeding for mine as well.

So only feed the angler once a week? Then all the others I can feed whenever they're hungry?

Yep.they can go longer but it's better to give them just enough to make sure they are still hungry next week.(almost like feeding a snake) Im working on getting my guy on a routine . Got lucky the first try but he has been quite difficult last try lol. Not sure about your eel never had or read about their proper feeding.
