You'll need to feed him live feeder shrimp or fish to begin with. Most won't take to frozen at first and sometimes never. The ones that do make the switch have been known to refuse frozen after awhile for no apparent reason too but great find though

They are strictly ambush predators thus the lure he sports on his head so meaty foods is all he needs

That I don't have a clue. To be honest I doubt you could without "probing" it in some way or witnessing him/her in the act
