you should wait at least a week before feeding, after a molt.......

For one, you're trying to feed it WAY too soon.

At that size, you want to wait AT LEAST a week, if not longer.

yup.. wait at least a week as the others said..

make sure it's all hardened up before offering food..

he might break his fangs eating when they are still soft.. and if he takes food.. :D

Ya...at least a week. Don't even try feeding until one week after any molt. Sometimes they take longer. It will eat when it's ready. Try feeding after that one week and if it doesn't eat remove the food and try again in a few days.
