My new eel

Hello all, The Dragon seems to be adapting well. Hasn't eaten yet, unless he has eaten some of the ghost shrimp I have been putting in. I put some damsels in but they seem to have made a home for themselves. At least my girl thinks the damsels are pretty!. Here are some new pics of the Dragon. Still haven't gotten that great shot yet. Any tips on getting these guys to eat? Thanks, Tim

Mainly feed on fish and can be fed strips of flesh such as: Herring, capelin, silversides, orange roughy, haddock, etc. Stay away from overly fatty foods and feed twice/week. A feeder stick of rigid airline tubing is best as a feeding tong/stick.

Man, I have always wanted one of those. I just can't swing the scratch. My LFS has a beautiful specimen too, but $999! I will have to stick to my snowflake.

What are you talking about man, those pics look AWESOME!! If ur having trouble feeding the eel. Which i have had in the past iv always had luck with a few simple steps. First wait at least 2 to 3 days to even start worrying about it, cause it takes them a lil longer to adapt and start eating. Also there is this liquid that u saturate the food in before feeding, and it attracts them to the food like you wouldnt believe. I cant think of the name of the stuff but everyt LFS will have it. I sucessfully fed a Moorish Idol with that stuff!! Try it out bro

Try garlic. I like Garlic Extreme. If that doesn't work try live food like guppies.

He finally ate the other night. He took some chunks of yellow fin Tuna fresh off the boat. Hopefully he will take some other items as Tuna can get a bit expensive. Thanks, Tim
