Rainbow shark not eating...

Uh oh... seems little Eli isn't eating... he's in a nicely heated tank all by himself. But he hasn't been touching his sinking pellets or any of the flakes that his owner said he loves... I'm not sure if he is eating and there is just a lot of leftovers or if he's stressed still from the environment change. Does anyone have any food recommendations? I kind of wanted to give him one organic raspberry to try but I don't know if that would be ok for him.

I remember my shark to be slow to eat when I first got him took a few days actually!
And he never cared much for the sinking pellets o.0 but then again, hes odd :P

Eli doesn't seem to like the sinking pellets either so I'm not sure what to do to make sure he eats but maybe after a few days he'll settle in and be just fine

I had one of those guys, I never saw him eat though his food would vanish mysteriously in the night once I was in bed. Mine seemed pretty shy. I only saw him later in the day or when I cleaned the tank and he had to flip out.

Haha I actually see him a surprisingly large amount of time but I have let to see him eat... but he could just be eating when I'm not looking. Xp
