You could also try feeding other food. Maybe he is not a fan of krill.

My lionfish is 13" and I still feed every day or atleast every other day. I'd say, if you can afford the food costs then go ahead and feed him every day or so.

If your nitrites aren't 0, then you must be battling a cycle. Describe your setup.

Fish can easily be overfed.

I used ammonia to cycle my tank 1 year ago but I guess I was over feeding my fish that why I got high nitrites cause of ammonia but it should go down with a few water changes no biggie

I use to do that before for my triggers. It was pretty neat.
