I would consider force feeding if you decide to make the switch to frozen and he doesn't want to eat it. Tell me how it goes if you have to. I let a shark die because it wouldn't eat and I thought that it would pull out of it. I haven't tried force feeding but hey its all an experiment.

He is now feeding on frozen food. The live FW carbs helped. I would have to brake there claws open then the shark went nuts. I have trying to get a pic of him feeding but it is hard when he only comes out at night to feed or swim around.  But I will post a pic when I get a good one.  you have sharks?

I had a coral banded shark for a very short while. It seemed very interested in the food that I was feeding it but it just wouldn't chomp it down. That is my only experience. Once read this new book I've got for the third time, I might try it again. I'm planning on putting a shark wadding pool in my basement this year.

cool. you will have to keep me posted on how it gose for you. have you tryed reading Aquarium Shark & Rays by Scott W. Michael? I love that book, it's got a lot of info on sharks in there. There was not to much info on my shark any were that I have found yet. The only thing I have found out so fare is. It is an eazy shark to take care of and hard to come by and that is it. But I would look at that book. Just my thoughts.
