Unhappy He doesn't like bloodworms?

So i just got these cubes of frozen bloodworms to feed my male and he did not even touch a single one of them! I've tried dried frozen before and he did eat but why not the frozen ones?

Sometimes they can loose their flavor after being frozen. Garlic juice (often sold as Seachem Garlic-Guard if you want a fish specific product) enhances flavor and gets the pickiest fish to eat! Also, grasping one with tweezers and holding it gently at the surface while wiggling it might entice him.

That should work. The important thing is that it is pure garlic, not something with additives (except the Seachem stuff might have additives, but you know what I mean...). I hope that works! Plus, give him a few days to "get it". He might not realize it is food yet.
