Red Tail Black Shark not eating :(
I've got a 2 inch red tail shark that doesn't seem to like the flakes or algae wafers but instead nibbles on the pebbles, rocks and plastic plants. I know he's probably surviving off scraps and algae but I want to give him something he enjoys to eat. Any suggestions?

I don't have the luxury to feed my fish live or frozen food as the wife would have a hissy fit if she knew I kept stuff like that around the house So far I've had the best luck with the algae wafers. The RTS didn't care much for the brine shrimp meal or the dried blood worms. I usually get them used to eating flakes but this one doesn't seem interested in them. Thanks for the suggestions :)
Good news... the little RTS came around and is eating the flakes. I think he learned from the Angelfish who take no time to chase and devour them. Sometimes I forget Angels are Cichlids. The second day I had this shark, he was exploring the top of the tank and apparently jumped out and into the power filter. I have no idea how but he ended up in the little compartment where the inlet and the motor/propeller is. When I realized he was missing and searched frantically all over the tank, I thought he had literally disappeared. This little guy is nothing but trouble... think he's going to be my favorite fish in the tank :)
