Serpent Starfish

I moved my serpent starfish into my main 29 gallon tank a few weeks ago and he wasn't responding too well to the change in environment. He continued to display signs of stress through his stubborn non-eating habits. He occasionally wanders around the tank to see what he can find, but not eat. I am aware that these guys are scavengers and all, but how long can they really make it out without a legit source of food. Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

I have one in my 20 gallon tank. Once in a while a take a very small piece of fresh shrimp and put it on a skewer and feed it to him. I only have a few fish in my tank so there is not much un-eaten food around for him. This way, I at least know he eats once in a while.
