Volitan Lionfish feeding question

Recently purchased my first Volitan Lionfish. It has been 4 days now and he refuses to take any food i offer him. I have tried frozen krill, mysis, brine, silversides. At first i would drop food in near him and he wanted nothing to do with it. I got a set of feeder tongs and tried waving it near him and still nothing. I know he is eating because i see him picking at the sand probably getting some hitch hikers. I am trying to stay away from live food if possible but it may be my only solution. Last night i spent a half hour trying to get him to eat. I know they are hardy fish but how long is to long before i dump live in there. I have read posts in the forums and i am trying everything in there. If there is someone with some experience that can shed some light on what i am doing wrong i would really appreciate it. Thanks

Yeah I think at this point it will be anything live that fits in his mouth. He wants nothing to do with frozen. Thanks
