I got some frozen silversides to feed it, but it refuses these as well. Any
ideas why it does this? The nitrate is fine. >>

I have had healthy sunfish that would eat anything but freeze dried or frozen
foods. Try some good trout pellets or good tropical flakes. It sometimes
takes them a while to learn n to eat them.
