Anerexic Yellow clown goby

Alright so I have had this lil guy for a lil over 3 weeks now and he will not eat. He was supposed to be tank raised and was supposedly eating frozen at the store. I've tried every kind of frozen food along with spectrum pellets and no luck. At first my bangai cardinal was kinda messing with him but that stopped after a couple of days. I have a biocube 29 with a refugium with a pair of clowns, bangai cardinal, firefish and a cuc of the usual hermits and snails. It's a really peaceful tank and I'm kinda at my wits end as to what is keeping him from eating cause all my other fish eat like pigs. Anyone ever have similar problems?

Try black worms or blood worms. Get him healthy with live food and then he may catch on and follow the other fish.

I turn my powerheads off and spread bloodworms around because my
Blenny is super shy and the Star, fish and inverts are kinda hectic

That way the sandbed stays quiet enough and a few worms sink, he and the serpent star get fed on opposite corners
