Eel ate some thread

Hello

I'm new to the forum so I hope I'm doing this right. I have trying to entice my lionfish to eat something other than dried krill, knowing its not healthy if I don't mix up his diet. I tied a 3 inch piece of thread on a silverside and dangled it in front of him. He wasn't interested but before I could even react my snowflake eel ate it...thread and all. Now I'm scared that it will hurt him and don't know what to do. I now know that it was a stupid thing to do but I love my marine animals and am really worried. Any help is appreciated!

Not much you can do now. You' have to see what happens next.

Heíll probably be ok. Eels are pretty resilient. Iíd try some live ghost shrimp to get him (the lionfish)eating.
