    Can we have a little more information?

    What was he eating before you got him? How are you trying to feed him (like just dropping it in or trying to "bait" him into grabbing it?), how long have you had him, what size tank do you have? What else is in the tank?

    Give him some time to adjust. He's probably freaked out from the move still.

    Lion fish only need to eat every 3 days so go to the fish store and get a few feeder guppies to feed him. In between, try getting him to eat something dead.

    You should really try to get him off live feeders. Especially fresh water ones. In the long run its not a good diet for them.
