You have to feed them live crickets at first, then you want to get him to take the crickets out of your hand. Once they're being hand fed transfer to freeze dried foods but still include some crickets, hand-feed both so other fish don't get them.
Once I had mine eating freeze dried it was easy to get him on flakes, I would put a little freeze foods on the surface with some flakes and once he realized it was food he was a great eater. I still bought him a cricket once in a while and would he got any both I found in the house.
