    I have two cresties that live in a 30 gallon tank and they seem to find their food fine. He may just be nervous. Do you have enough cover for him? Try to put his food somewhere that he doesn't feel exposed. I keep my cresties' food on a holder purchased from this site so that it is higher against the glass instead of on the ground.

    Yours should be able to smell the food and find it if he wants it--it's a matter of being comfortable enough.

    Also this is just an aside, but I have heard that sometimes it is better to put the female in the tank first so that she becomes comfortable with the space and then introduce the male, as they can tend to be more aggressive. That is probably just preference, though.

    Edit: I should add--if you're trying to feed live food, it's going to be harder for them to catch it in the larger space. CGD should be easily found though.
