How long are you leaving before trying the frozen food and what frozen food are you feeding too?

Very cool fish though

What I did for my lionfish I used to have was the first time I kinda forced him to eat freeze dried krill that I put on the end of a sush kabob stick and stuck it in his mouth and he ate it ever since then he would take it right of the stick

Get a transparent feeding stick from yout lfs and put a big thawed krill on it. Then wiggle it around on the tank like its swimming. After a few days itll take one and after it gets a taste for it you should be able to just drop them in...
