Hello,

I purchased a 7 inch banded cat shark from bluezooaquatics. i received it Tuesday. i acclimated him for over 2 hours with a drip line. he seems to be doing good but he just wont eat. ive tried fresh squid, frozen squid, cooked squid, frozen silversides, frozen krill, and frozen shrimp... any ideas to help me feed this little guy? i didn't try to feed him until Wednesday and he is still not eating as of today, Tuesday.

i really appreciate any replies.

thanks,
robert

Live food will probably be the key... what kind of tank do you have... size shape is it rocky or mostly sand what else is in there

im going to try live ghost shrimp today, and its a 180 gallon hexagon rounded corner tank. it has only 40 pounds of live rock mostly for hiding spots, and 2 lionfish and a panther grouper which are being sold today as i want just sharks in there. i also have a shark egg which seems to be doing well.
