Help with non-feeding fire bellied newt

This little guy just wont eat, well atleast not anything frozen. Ive tried blood worms, brine shrimp, and baby mealworms. I cant get any earthworms small enough. Next I'm going to try baby crickets. The dechlorinated water is about 70 degrees, so I'm pretty sure his surrounding isnt the problem. Is there any place that sells live blood worms or brine shrimp, Ive looked and cant find any. If you have any advice, it would be most welcomed.

I have a FBN and have never had any problems with it not eating. I've never tried frozen food because I find the soft newt food alot easier to feed and it eats it just fine. You can also try bloodworms that are in a gel (they come in little packets). Anyway, hope this helps. Good luck...
