Thanks, I gave him some shrimp flakes and he ate a little bit. I will look into frozen mysis once I save up my allowance.

Fish don't eat when stressed. This can come from acclimation to a new environment, but as this is a brand new tank...you have a liquid test kit to know what your ammonia and nitrite levels are? If the tank wasn't properly cycled, the ammonia levels are probably poisoning your fish.

I have ph, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and alkalinity test kits. Tested my water today and it reads fine. I got him to take some crushed flake food and a little lettuce.
