How often are you trying to feed it? If everyday I would skip a few days and try again .

Hmmm that usually works . Can you try no food at all for a day or two or do you have other fish?

Yes. Well just a maroon for now and the lion doesn't eat what I feed him..which is odd pcause it has meaty foods and garlic in it. But I could try to skip another day or two. Any other suggestions??
