    I started off with a piece of air hose and baby guppies and would blow on the end to push the guppie out, then i started replacing the guppies with small pieces of thawed out lance fish over a period of about 4 days as im feeding every day coz he is so small, by this time he learnt that i am the food source from there i went with a feeding stick with some fishing gut attached to the end and thats what he feeds of now!!

    @king squish, yeah got him eating on Sunday, but it was a mission, drove around trying to find a little cage to put him in, so he is eating the heads of silverfish, must be in the eyes, this weekend I am going to try super shrimp! Thanks for your help bud!

    Here's a pic, he gets a bit spooked when I come close the tank, so he can be shy.

    Very cool fish, I to have one and OMG can they eat.

    At one point I thought I'd killed mine as he managed to swollow a whole silverside almost as big as himself.
