Default Salamander refuses to eat

Okay, so my fire salamander is refusing to eat worms. Ocassionally he'll eat one if he's very hungry, but for the most part he wants nothing to do with them. He'll follow them until he figures out that it is, in fact, a worm and then turn away from it. He used to absolutely love them, but I think someone fed him a red wiggler that was cut and he got a taste of its icky secretions. He's very thin now and I'm not sure what to do. He lives in the same tank as another fire salamander that is the same age, and that one eats wonderfully. What should I do to keep this guy healthy and get him eating again?
