Great question within the past week I've had my cardinal and haven't seen him eat yet. But was told to get some mysis shrimp and try that and he picked at a few of those also tried brine shrimp and he enjoyed those a bit more.

When I first had mine I started feeding them mysis with a couple of drops of garlic on it. It didn't take long for them to start eating.

I lost a couple of them because they wouldn't eat. Will be interested to see if the garlic works. I use some of it now for soaking my nori in...but holy cow does it stink!
