Is this the same snowflake eel that we warned you about not putting into a 10 gallon? Eels show that they are stressed by not eating. Do a large water change to try to address possible parameter issues, but if it is in a tank too small or nowhere to hide it will not be happy.

I agree he needs a bigger tank. I would not feed mysis. Get a shrimp from store and cut it in fourths. feed this to him. it might not eat because of stress though.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
