You can take a wooden skewer and impale the silverside, then wiggle it in the water. The live prey simulation often triggers a feeding response. Some lions will simply cave to their hunger and eat them w/o your efforts. Also add other things to the menu; chopped table shrimp, small pieces of scallop, bonelss whitefish, squid, etc...
When I had my larger tanks, I kept a few lions, and all of them quickly weaned to "dead" foods.

Americans sleep peacefully in their beds at night because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Current Tank Info: 37 FOWLR; sixline wrasse, pair of ocellaris and a ywg
