My hatchling is very healthy, active BUT refuses to eat anything except his shrimp! I have spent a bunch of money on different foods/pellets and he’s refusing to eat it. I know he needs the pellets and other stuff but he’s being super picky. What do I do!?

How big is he? What kind of foods/pellets have you tried? In most cases, you can resort to some tough love.

Have you tried him on Mazuris? Mine refused to eat zoo med and Reptomin, but soon learnt that shrimp wasn't coming every day...
