Atelomycterus Marmoratus (pup)

Dear AA community I recently hatched a coral catshark pup & need some advice from the community or those that has raised them from eggs. After 3 days i attempted to give it some squid & it took it and swimmed around with it and spit it out. I tried today & it had no interest in the food. I've tried squid, shrimp, & silversides. I also have tried to feed it after lights are off. The pup is only 4 days old. Hatched with no yolksac attached & I really would hate to lose it so any advice is appreciated.

It will want to eat Ďliveí food. Find a way to make it wiggle. Even some fishing line if needed.

I've tried dangling food in front of it. It would take it sometimes but only spit it back out afterwards. I'm going to try when lights are off again tonight. Thanks for the advice though.

Just make sure to remove Amy uneaten food.
Try not to get too worked up about it. It can take several days for a newborn shark to eat. Really depends on how long it takes to deplete the nutrients it consumed while still in the egg sack. Can be days, maybe even weeks.

Thanks once again for the info & I'll just keep trying. Even though the pup hasn't eaten still looks healthy & active.

Does it have to be or is it supposed to still be in the net ?
I would think not myself but absolutely no knowledge of this process.

Yes for now (1) have to get it eat & on a regular basis. (2) I have a snowflake eel that is 12"- 14" that probably would eat the pup at this size. Have nowhere to put the eel at this time.
