did you quarantine? Any signs of disease or ich? From what I remember they are finicky eaters. I always use garlic on my food and have never had an issue but others will say otherwise. What works for some in this hobby may not work for others. GL .

P.S- I think yelling at him and giving him a stern talking may work.
