I gave him few different kind of pellets, one of them my other indo tiger would eat. besides the pellet, I tried superworm (food for my HBA), bloodworm, and even small feeder.
Yeah, pellets are the toughest. I still can't get mine to eat pellets even though the ray eats pellets and I still offer it everyday. Mine would not eat bloodworms. I'm ok with them eating frozen shrimp and smelts for now.

Actually I tried a brine shrimp.before and it made my tank a mess. at that time, none of my fishes like to eat. So I need to clean up my tank and filter..

Try a small portion first or you can turn off your filter for a while. I think stuff that is suspended/floating around kindda triggers their predatory instinct.

Sounds like your dat is still a bit traumatized from the move and it's new environment. Try to provide plenty of covers/hiding spaces, and either keep the tank's light off or filter it, to substantially lower the brightness. Once it acclimates, then set up the tank as it was.

Some times when you are feeding brine shrimp you need to discern if you should thaw it so there are many tiny particles or just throw a small chunk of still frozen. Sometimes the tiny particles don’t speak to some fish if they are too big. When I trained my pbass to eat pellets I had to crush pellets, and mix that in with the brine shrimp because they wouldn’t eat anything more than brine shrimp or live. When I did this I refroze the mixture and would drop numerous bite sized chunks in that they would hit really fast. i
