Sometimes fish don't like the new foods thats offered, this can occur is you don't vary their diet or they can be picky. "Starving" them for a couple of days and then offering the food would be a way to increase success of him eating, and at the same time offering more than just dried foods. (A healthy fish can survive weeks without food, so a few days will not kill them.)
