Any other tips?
No those two will do.

I'm having real difficulty getting him to eat. When he does, its just very minimal, but mostly swims up to the food quick, then doesn't make the commitment to eat it.

Even tried soaking the brine shrimp in garlic.

Any thoughts?

Try mysis shrimp. It is better for him.

I'll give it a shot, but if he doesn't take to the brine, will he likely take to the mysis? It's much bigger.

Well one thing is that it`s better for him anyway. Brine shrimp is like you and me sitting down to supper to a plate of twinkies. If you can get him to eat it they will be better for his system.
