He may just not be hungry right now, try again later (or just leave some in there and see if he's eaten later), I wouldn't stress over it to much, he's in a new place probably just needs time to adjust.
haha, i'm not stressed at all,
i'm just concerned for the little guy!
but alright, i'll give him some time to settle in his new spot.
