I have a Fu Manchu Lion Fish now for about 4 months. I have not been able to get the fish to eat anything other then live ghost shrimp. I have tried krill, mysis and even brine shrimp with no luck. Even went for a couple of weeks without feeding to entice it to eat the krill but no luck.

Any suggestions?

I've tried the stick method and once the fish did strike the krill, but then spit it out! Stubborn, have you guys ever heard of soaking in garlic? I haven't tried it yet, but maybe I will.

They like shrimp, shrimp, and more shrimp. If they spit it out then they don't want it. Mines is a year and a half. He likes live shrimp, spits out all frozen shrimp and won't even try for sliversides. He likes his live shrimp. So thats what he gets... Unless I want a dead fish.
