Need help with my lionfish

I've had my lionfish for about 2 months now and I can't get him to eat anything but feeder guppies. I know they aren't good for him. I've tried krill with some garlic, but he won't eat it. What should I do?!?

How big is the lionfish? Some of them never learn to accept foods other than live feeder fish, but if I know how big it is, I can maybe suggest a few things to try. I've had a lot of luck getting lionfishes onto frozen foods, it just takes time and diligence.

Try using a feeder stick and wave garlic soaked shrimp or krill around like it's alive. That should get his attention.
