Give the cuttle a break, don't feed him for about a day and he should be hungry by then, sometimes my cuttles will ignore food thats just in front of their faces. How large are the fish and shrimp?

it's not really good at aiming though because it has to try at least three times to get the fish or shrimp. for shrimp it usually takes around 5 times.

Where is he sat in the tank?

If he is at the surface then he is hungry and hunting, if he is sat on the botton and buried then he is nice and content!
