Hi DJRansome
Thanks for advice.
I have the calvus only for 3 days. LOL! i am not sure what he ate in the pet shop though...
Ok i will try a more carnivorous pallet, probably a 46% protein type and hope he will take it.
Thank you.

Wait a month before you worry too much about them not eating.

Good idea to ask the shop and feed 50/50 for a while.

Don't keep switching food until you find something they will eat...if they are hungry and healthy and not being harassed (in their opinion, not yours) they will eat when they are hungry. I'm betting 2 days if you start feeding 50% what the shop was feeding.
