Try some broccoli or nori soaked in garlic to stimulate its appetite. I have persnally found that frozen cyclopeeze can get just about any fish to eat. HTH I hope you have no corals in your tank.

Corals and butterflies rarely do good together. Forgot to mention earlier if you try broccoli make sure it is previously frozen.
