she/he won\'t eat veggies yet, not til it is older. Did you try breaking the pellets into tiny pieces? Also, a good starter food to get them eating is raw shrimp.

What is the water temp? Mine will not eat if the water is below 75 degrees. I keep the water at 80 and they get ravenous. Try cooked chicken cut into small pieces too.
