A BRB breeder I wrote to said that pinks are probably too small to attract his notice, so at 14 days PR I offered him a 5 gram f/t fuzzy which he ate, but then regurged 4 days later. I'm not sure it would be a good idea to try and switch prey species at this point. Dave C. also suggested lowering the temperature of his hot spot, which I did.

I've ordered some NutriBACdf from Amazon to try and replenish his gut biome at his next feeding, but he's so fussy I'm not sure he'll eat anything dusted with an unfamiliar substance.
When I had Morzan, he was really picky about the NutriBAC-dusted pinks. I dusted it as lightly as I could by patting the mouse dry and rolling it through a pile of the dust. Oftentimes, he would still refuse it, so if he didn't immediately take it I'd re-dip the head in warm water from the tap. He usually took it after that. Perhaps this will help you as well if he does give you problems.

All that aside, I'm sorry you're having to deal with this.
