they usually slowly starve in aquariums, and seeing the slight indent on its stomach, it seems its already on that path.

why would it starve? Its a great eater! Ate at the store before i purchased, and ate this morning when i fed my tank.

I know some of them wont take frozen but this guy is a great eater!

Well i feel like 90% of the battle with these guys is getting them to eat frozen, and seing how he already is i think it will do just fine. And just like everyone said my mandarin would starve, and yet they keep getting fatter and fatter! lol

Any tips with these guys tho?

a squirt of live blackworms from time to time will def. help, dont over do it though! clams on a half shell might work too.
