whats wrong with my lion?

i have this big volitan loinfish...(about 9 inches long) and i know that they have a hard time getting used to eating prepared food (they prefer live) but i have had him for a long time now and he wont eat anymore...everything with him seems fine...he even seems hungry. i put his normal shrimp (dehydrated) in and he swims around all aggressvily and swims to it and even lets it hit him.. he stalks it and everything like always. he even swims right up to it, and fake snaps at it but wont eat it...ive tried other things but he doesnt even pay attention to those..he loves the shrimp but he wont make the final step and eat the dang thing! can loins get like lockjaw or what is his deal? water parameters all ok..is he just being stubborn and demanding live food? i dont like do to this because it introduces diseases into the aquarium
