    Cross your fingers and start adding garlic to your food

    Also try some different foods. Have you used frozen mysid? Bits of krill, fish eggs, etc... Like JJ said, garlic might induce a feeding response, a little soak of the food in a mixture of a few grains of sugar and selcon or other vitamin additive might help too.
    Don't look here for a comment.

    I feed a mixture of mysis, blood worms and brine shrimp with vitamins mixed in. He eats when I feed them but he lost all the wait when he stopped sifting the sand. He used to cover everything in rocks and sand now nothing.
