I think I helped mine a lot with stress from hand feeding him almost daily and when I do feed him live food or minnows I put him and the minnows in a smaller enclosure and when they go to the other end I scare them back towards him with my hands and he sits and waits with his mouth open for them. Even when he eats out of my hand he's gentle and lets me put the food in his mouth and closes slowly. Sounds crazy to do for some people but it makes him look forward to seeing me because he knows he will be eating soon. After that I let him sleep on lap or chest of hours while watching TV.
