Problem with ADF.

So, the other day I bought an ADF and he's really a lively little fella. The only problem with him is, he isn't eating. I bought him TopFin Freeze-Dried Bloodworms, but I don't think he's eating it because it floats for quite awhile.
Many sites I came across said Freeze-Dried Bloodworms were good for them and they enjoyed it, however I finally found a couple others who said otherwise.

I was wondering if any ADF owners could tell me what they feed their little buddies so I can buy something new and hopefully get him to eating. :S

Also, I'll note this...
-He's in a tank by himself (in quarantine to make sure he's healthy before adding him in my 10g).
-The tank is heated (76-80 degrees)
-He's completely active...especially in the evening.
-He has spots to hide in.

I'll be stopping by Petsmart tomorrow to grab something new.

Thanks for any help!

I don't have ADF's but you might try soaking the freeze dried worms first then using tweezers to get them down where he is or buy frozen blood worms, they will sink much better IME. When I thaw them in a small glass with some tank water then pour them into the tank most of them sink down.
