What is its activity level? If still moving it should be ok. Remember mine didn't move for 4 days after a big meal but he still ate the next week fine. I think if gets overfed constantly it will go on a strike but I think one week isn't bad.

Should be ok. Just keep an eye on him. It's going to be hard to limit food when your other fish eat live food also. One of the reasons they are recommended to be solitary so you can make sure he only eats when you want him to.update after a few days when he is mobile again .

Okay sounds good. Usually the fish stay clear of him so he doesn't eat unless I want him to. But my eel wouldn't eat the damsels so in the process of trying to catch the damsels one of them ran right into his mouth haha

Cool. I doubt he would eat if he was totally stuffed. But if food came right into my mouth I would eat it too lol

I know sometimes eels will wrap around hermits until they get them. Not sure since snowflakes tend to be more docile. Regardless, worth a try for adding some more life to the tank!
