Hey guys,

Im just wondering what I should feed my new eel. I bought some uncooked shrimp today and was wondering if this is good or should I get the cooked kind? What other suggestions would you have?

I actually have a gloden dwarf moray(albeit for only about 2 weeks) but I feed mine 2-3 times weekly, I switch between frozen krill, clam strips, squid, & he will also eat pellets that fall to the bottom....mine wouldn't eat for the 1st 4 days I had him but took off after that.....if you feed store bought shrimp definately feed uncooked not cooked.....HTH

Thanks spw, I tried the shrimp and the little guy ate it within about 10 seconds of it being in front of him :) Im happy.

For the most part they are voracious eaters, the biggest thing IMO is varying their diet. I have mine in a 38gallon with a blue hamlet & pretty soon a dwarf lion.
