Yellow-headed Pearly Jawfish

I was wondering if anyone could give me advice on what to feed these fish. Mine won't come out of his burrow yet (I have only had him a few days) and I tried to place some brine shrimp by him but he only gets a little before the other fish grab it. Will he eventually come out to eat, is there another method, or something else to try? Also, I do realize that frozen brine shrimp isn't the most nutritious but it was all I could get my hands on until this weekend. That is my reason for asking now what to buy, I don't want to end up with something he won't eat.

try whole shrimp, krill, other meaty stuff.

he m=ight be just getting used to the tank like you said but dont try brine shrimp. i dont know if its just me but the first food i feed my fish when they are newly introduced is the only stuff theyll eat. And again like you said brine shrimp isnt reeally nutritious unless it has vitamins or something like spirulina already in it.
I'm tired of getting pointless messages. If your going to start a conversation or ask me something, keep up with it.
