Any suggestions on getting a lookdown to eat would be appreciated.

I've tried frozen mysis and bloodworms, live ghost shrimp and feeder minnows.

Any luck with your lookdown? I have one and got him eating small feeder goldfish. Feeder fish aren't ideal because of the limited nutrients/health, but they do work to entice feeding. If that doesn't work, I recommend you try cut raw shrimp or shrimp pellets. a fourth option is smelt - be careful not to pollute your tank. Using a wooden skewer to wiggle the shrimp might also help. Good luck!

I did get him to eat feeder minnows but he never recovered and eventually died. I do have another that's eating very well, taking frozen and even flake foods.
