What else can i add

I have a 90 gallon tank with 55 plus pounds of live rock, 90 pounds of crushed coral/ arogonite sand" live"

1x 2 foot snowflake eel
1x small volitan lionfish
1x chocolate chip star fish
10x turbo snails
5x snails that live in the sand and come up for feeding time.

Also I have for filtration
20 gallon wet/dry
Coral life uv sterilizer 9wAtt turbo twist

Well I read that dog face needs over 100 gallons plus the fish you have already some of them need over 90 but I seen in the lfs they are in 1x1 tanks for sale for long periods of time

Lmao I had the same problem it took me 1 hour to finally get the two foot eel out of the aquarium. He was soooooooooooo stressed out. It's been two weeks and still refuses to eat.. I'm sure he will be fine though cause he is realllllllly healthy looking

Ahhhhh... Hummmmm well my tank is pretty boring to stare at unless the volitan is chasing ghost shrimp around.... I should probally keep it the way it is with just the two fish in it.

You can put a shrimp or something it will eat in front of its face on a stick or something long enough and it might eat it then but watch out for your lion it could swim over and poke you trying to get his food

Well I tried feeding the eel multiple times since ive had him. I've used " squid, shrimp, silver slides and even soaked them in garlic extract".

I use a long feeder stick.

He never ate them. I'm personal friends with the owner of my lfs and watched the eel eat silver slides multiple times there on a feeding stick.

So I figured since he was so stressed I'd try live ghost shrimp welllllllll he didn't eat them so I bought a volitan lion to finish eating them. Poor lion is overfeed and lives chasing them around.
