If you could get a side on photo perhaps?
Nice looking fish though. Agree on the tank being too small for him.
Try with lights out, adding a feeder fish and some pellet food, check in the morning to see if they have been eaten, if not then he/she might be just adjusting to their new home. They can go anything up to 8 days without eating and not having any problems, so keep and eye on it.
Thanks. I'll take a new photo tomorrow when I get to work. Hopefully either the flowerhorn or the gar (although hopefully both) will be sold later this week and I can move the pike into the 80 gallon. The lights in the stacks go out at night (6pm-9am).
What size feeder fish do you think would be most appropriate for this fish?
