Cant get banded cat shark to eat

My banded cat shark won't eat. I try to hand feed him a ghost shrimp every night. I just put him in a bucket by himself with a shrimp to see if he'll eat now because I cant let him catch the shrimp on his own in the tank cause my lion fish beats him to it. Any ideas?

Don't worry. It may not eat for a week or more. It only just hatched so it is still living on the yolk.

Ok. I'm just worried. Will he start eating when it's gone. Cause I still see a tiny tiny bit of his yoke sack left

It might take him a little while to eat after its gone. Be patient. He just started living lol. Btw, where you you keep your egg? Mine is on an algae clip on the side of a tank but I'm thinking that it might block his way of getting out

I just set it on the bottom of the tank and stood it up on the back of the tank so it wasn't laying flat in the sand
