Maybe try some mysid shrimp or cyclops-eeze. Have you offered it flake food? Another thing you could do is to get some garlic extreme or something simular to soak the food in. This helps get reluctant eaters going. Unless your soaking the brine in a good supplement, I wouldn't bother giving him more of that.
