Rep: dearliza has started on the right path

You might try putting him in a smaller container with lots of small, live worms for a little while each time you feed him. I had a newt that was very shy and wouldn't eat with the other newt in the tank for the first few months that I had him. He also wouldn't eat food that wasn't moving. I started taking him out and putting him in a small plastic container with about 1/2 inch of water and lots of bloodworms for about 30 minutes every couple days. That did the trick--he ate every time and fattened up quite nicely. As he grew a little, he became less shy and after about a couple months began eating happily with the other newt.
