My tesla eel wont eat

I just recently purchased a tesla eel about a week and half ago. And I've been trying to feed it krill silver sides and squid. But it wont take anything. all my other fish eat fine. All my water parameters are where they need to be

When my Zebra eel stops eating its regular frozen diet that I keep it on,I give it a couple live crayfish.After that it goes back to frozen food.I do this every couple weeks.

I agree you may have to go live, but should take meaty food quick.

How do you like the zebra? I'm really debating on one

We have 2 Tess. and when we first got them I think we were trying to give them too big of pieces of food and they would turn their head away. Now we feed them thin slices with our long tweezers If we just dump food in the tank, they wont take it and to be honest, I dont know if they can even see it?. The 4 footer is a bit picky and won't even try a prawn.
Cheers! Mark
