How long have you had it? If it is 'brand new' I would give it ~7-10 days to chill out (don't handle, etc...). When trying to switch kenyans from live to f/t I let them get hungry (don't feed them for 2-3 weeks) and then I wait for them to poke their head out of the substrate. At this point I put a small pinky mouse on forceps and dangle the pinky in front of it (bouncing if off of the substrate at times). If this doesn't get the reaction you are hoping for I will try tapping them on the head with the pinky mouse.

Best of luck and keep us posted.
