How do I get my goby to eat?

I've read that getting gobies to eat is hard. I have a Sleeper head goby and he hasnt eaten since I bought him yesterday. I have yet to see him even sift the sand.
Any suggestions as to what to feed him or how to get him to eat?
Thanx

I wouldnt be concerend if he hasent eaten in only one day. Many fish will not eat for a short period after introduction into a new enviorment. One way to get them to start eating would be to use live brine shrimp as an incentive. Then you can wheen the fish over to frozen prepaired foods or frozen brine thats been soaked in vitemins.
