I just got my first saltwater fish( a snowflake eel ) I knew he wouldn't eat right away but tried are there any tips on how to feed him I have tongs and put the krill near him but he just backed away still probly too stressed though as of now I just have frozen krill (from the fish store) and frozen scallops(from hy-vee) he wouldn't touch the krill and they said that's what they feed him

Initially an eel may need luve food to setlle them in, live ghost shrimp wohld be a good starter. Then various strips if seafood, make them no wider than the width of his eyes and and about 3/4 long. Tongs may be intimidating for small eels and may have to use a clear feeding stick, like an airline tube from the lfs.

Krill should fed very sparingly, if at alll, due to leading to nutritional defencencies, which will lead to death.
