fuzzy dwarf lion(help please)

i bought one last wednesday and i cant get him to eat.the store sold me some guppies and that didnt work.i have a dart fish in there he has no interest in eating it.i went back to the store and asked if they had ghost shrimp or something alive,no.he sold me some silver fish (frozen)and said to get a stick and put it through the mouth and keep trying till he goes after it.he has no interest in this method at all either.i am really tired of these people cause there isnt a store around for probably 50 miles.any suggestions on how this fish might eat

Try a silver side (frozen at most LFS's) using a pair of long tweezers. Just try to make it move like it's alive. Don't just give it to your Lion Fish but make him work for it. In the wild he may only eat once in many attempts.

Be patient. Lion's don't eat like regular fish. Don't feed him for a couple of days, it'll come around.
