: Try placing him in a small container with water and throw in the feeder fish; remember that if they're uncomfortable with their enviroment they will not eat, so a water filter is a plus, try turtle pellets (they tend to like those a lot at an early age) and shrimp (the unexpensive, salad kind)...do not worry if it goes for 5 days without eating, as they go for weeks without eating in the wild, so don't worry, let it settle down and it will eventually start eating normally.
: hope that helps,
: : I've had him for around 4 or 5 days now. He is not eating the feeder fish I put in there for him. He just sits under the sand and pokes his head up once in a while to breath.. Is there something wrong or is this normal..

Is the tank heated?
