Help-Ram cichlid will not eat


Ive had my german blue ram for a few months now. When i first got him, he would not eat flake food (ocean nutrition community formula) or pellets(sinking new life spectrum community). I next tried frozen brine shrimp-didnt work either. Finally i found a store that carried live black worms and the little guy went nuts. So i fed him black worms for about 2 months. I have now relocated and no place around here carries live black worms. You can see the indention in the fishes abdomin. I tried frozen blood worms the other day, and he just spits them out! What should i do?

Hrmmm.. every blue ram I've ever owned will eat any food put in the tank. Flake, frozen mysis, frozen brine, freeze dried brine, etc.

How long has it been since he last ate?
