Mine eats mysis shrimp no problem, it took him a couple of days to figure out what it was but after watching the other fish in my tank feeding he figured it out pretty quick.

You can get dried seaweed and a clip with suction cup to attach to the wall of your tank. I haven't had much luck getting mine to eat it. I've tried to target feed him algae and other food by hand but he's a bit of a weeny. don't know if this is any help.

Keep us posted on what happens, it might help me with mine.

Dried seaweed as mentioned will work fine. also there are several flake foods out there that are made of vegetable matter. Spirulina being a very good one.

I was under the impression, correct me if I'm wrong, that brine shrimp hold very little nutritional value. Think candy bars for fish.

Since he's eating brine shrimp now is the time to start feeding other food at the same time.

Air is air and brineshrimp is not the best. Look in the Asian section of your Supermarket and buy some Dried Nori. Make sure it's just Nori with no additives. Another good food is "Ogo" also in the Asian section. Suppliment with Mysis. Varitiy is the best.
