Try soaking for in garlic to attract them to eat. They may be getting used to the tank. It took my puffer about a week to eat. Good Luck.

They make stuff in liquid form, I just got some garlic extreme from petco the other day. i put the frozen food and some tiny pellets in a cup, add a few drops of the garlic juice and let it soak for a few minutes. Then away i go. they make other soaks as well, one is called entice and it also contains garlic I think. Check out some sources online for ideas.

Both my pairs of clowns eat all of those things. My b&w's even eat bloodworms unlike my orange oscellaris. n Mine can never turn down some flake food either. I feed New life spectrum to ALL my tanks, fresh and salt and use a mix of flakes and pellets. I feed frozen every other day to my 125g and twice daily to my cube for my scooter and mandarin.
