Eclipse/sun catfish

I have an eclipse catfish and all it does is hide underneath some wood in my tank, I can't tell if it's eating it not because I never see it swim around. How can I make sure it is eating??

I would feed him at night. Most catfish are nocturnal so he would probably eat when the lights are out.

Cool thanks, I usually feed him at night anyways so maybe he eats when I can't see, are dried bloodworms alright?

That should be ok. You could also tempt him with frozen food.
