Try feeding silversides. How long have you had him? Some go a couple weeks without eating after reaching a new tank.

How big is he? Mine is between 24-30" and he eats 1/2 raw shrimp. I have always feed him with tongs, and I make him come up for food. He usually will eat 2 shrimp cut in half. I have also bought a seafood mix(frozen) from the grocery store(shrimp,fish,squid,octopus,ect.) He seems to like all of them. He will not eat silversides. Mine eats every other day or so. If he comes out and shows an intrest I feed him. Good Luck!
