Yeah they can be fussy. I cannot for the life of me get one batch of fry to eat pellets. Would make life that much easier but even when I had a fish in there to show them what to do they still looked at me like I was crazy.

I floated my guy in his cup in a heated tank and used a syringe to change water. That way I could easily find him and keep an eye on him. He was small but he was able to eat crushed pellets and frozen blood worms. I dethawed them in hot water and then stabed them with a tweezer to make them smaller

Have you tried flakes?

I secretly was hoping the petco that just opened here had babies. They don't which is probably for the best, but I want one.
