Neon Blue Goby ... Not Eating

What does this little critter eat? He looks at the pelleted food (I've yet to make the blender mush) like he wants to eat it, but he simply doesn't. I've got some sweetwater zooplankton, but I think it's a bit large for him. I can pick up some frozen mysid or brine, and while I know this isn't good for him, maybe it'll hold him over 'til I can get him something to eat? Other than that he's quite healthy and quite beautiful. I just wanna keep him that way. Thanks.

125 gallon saltwater: 55gal sump, 4 Blue-Green Chromis, Purple Tang, True Perc, Firefish, Royal Gramma, 5 Ricordea, Bubble Coral, 15 Pulsing Xenia, Green Star Polyps, Deresa clam, Green-Tip Torch Coral (about 11 "heads"!), Orange Montipora Cap, Purple M. Digitata, Green Slimer Acro. Yongei, 3 Orange M. Digitata, Pink&Green Acro. Millepora

My goby doesn't require me to feed him other than a occasion brine shrimp as long as you have lots of live rock he should be ok. Gobys eat microscopic critters that live in live rock. You should see him picking through the live rock and you may not know it but he is probably eating you just can't see what.

10 gallon salt water 3 damsels
20 saltwater mini reek yellow tang green mandrin goby, clownfish, yellowtail damsel, coral banded shrimp, skunk cleaner shrimp, lots of corals and fiji rock
75 gallon cycling soon to be reef tank

Try dry food, mine likes that. He also enjoys "marine cruisine" by San Fransisco brands.

Being as small as they are, food size will have plenty to do with it as well. My sharknose goby loves the Cyclop-eeze freeze dried decopods.

My Wheeler's Watchman goby likes live baby brine shrimp. I keep a batch hatching in a separate 1 gallon plastic hermit crab cage.
