Live saltwater shrimp is good also try to find frozen krill not the cubed kind but the type with the whole krill in it . Works like a charm.

I get 6 live twice a week for my small dwarf and he eats usually about 2 or 3 and my puffer gets the rest . Other than that mine takes mysis and the whole frozen krill. Toss 2 live shrimp in there see what happens.

You could even treat him to some chromis every now and then,,i usually get my angler some a couple times a month..Getting him to accept frozen will be a big plus too

you could always throw some mollies in and wait for them to start vanishing

he dont sell live shrimp only live fish and that was a waste of money.sold me 6 guppies and they were dead in a few hours.i cant find number 6 and was looking under decorations and cant find the mollie so hopefully he ate it.when i had 6to 8 small fish i use to do ten percent water changes every two weeks and my readings were perfect.now i only have one dwarf lion can i get away with 3 weeks in a 75 gal comm tank.
