I thaw the worms in a small pastic cup of tank water, suck some worms up into the turkey baster and then dump the cup-o-worms on the opposite end of the tank. Once everyone else is in a feeding frenzy on the opposite end of the tank I use the turkey baster to release the worms at the front entrance to his cave. He goes nuts for them! Does your shark have a particular cave or hang out spot? If so, my tedious little feeding method might get some yummy worms over to him.
Yah, he tends to hang out in the back corner of my tank where i've placed 2-3 plants. working on getting a cave driftwood etc.
