Typically, feeders aren't provided the same level of care as "show" fish. More often than not, illness is overlooked due to high turnover. Your LFS simply restocks his tank with feeders from his supplier who also says they are "high quality". Not very reliable. I think you're expecting results too quickly. From my cichlid keeping experience, they eat when they're hungry. That's also when they "show"; so don't feed often, feed him once a day or every other day. He'll let you know when he wants to eat and show for you.

But why does he comes near me when I go near the tank if he's not hungry?
