Meaty foods, like chunks of raw shrimp, pieces of squid, fresh fish flesh, raw clams. You might also get him to take some type of marine pellet. Just keep the diet varied.

i added some cooked shrimp, cut up a bit. He dont seem to like that. Is it because that it is cooked shrimp and not raw?

Possibly, raw will have a greater smell to it as well. Also you might try a feeding stick, and move it around. It worked for me.
