I've been doing water changes of 5-10 gallons over the past 4 days and my parameters are

ph 8.0-8.2
nitrite 0
nitrate 10
ammonia 0.25
salinity 1.021

The eel is more active in moving around the tank, but it still is not eating

I have put shrimp on the feeding stick and also I have purchased grass shrimp. The eel goes to the grass shrimp as if he wants to eat them but he doesn't.

I have read about eels going into a hibernation mode but he still comes out.

Also, do eels shed skin like a snake normally does, i had someone suggest that but I don't know what to think of next.

Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Thanks for the help

From time to time it is not uncommon for most eels to go into a "hybernation" period, often hiding and not eating for several weeks or so.

I don't know if you should worry about it or not.
