What type of shrimp are you using? Raw? Youcould also try offering him silversides and krill. Maybe mix it up a bit.

it is not uncommon for a snowflake to go several days between meals. You will find that they usually eat better for you if you do not feed them every day. Every other day or even every third day will work well.

i offer every 2-3 days, offering food on different schedules is the best approach.. IMO
