Try soaking food in garlic. It entices them to eat with the smell. Try with lights on and off also. Try different food.

Rods food for predators works well! It still disintegrates but not as bad as the regular. Our eel and lionfish love it!

Mysis shrimp or blood worms might help.
Rule number one: Always research a fish before you buy it.

Rule number two: Always cycle your tank.
