I use a bendy straw ...
At first i would put the chromis in with the straw dangling in the water ..Then i would just put the straw in ,,now he's trained very well to take from the straw ...Wasn't too hard ,but i have heard of people having a real hard time doing it..
Heres mine eating

If you use a clear stick( like those for under ground filters) all they see is the food not the stick.

I put a few shrimp in with him but he has touched them at all.....is it just because he's new that he's not eating?

Stress may make him take a while to regain his appetite. Try feeding every other day. If he won't take frozen food you may have to try live food. Depending on his size I would try Thawed Krill or Silversides first then small to large live feeder Guppies as a last resort.
