My aunt gave me her RES he's about 6 now but she never fed him greens only pellets and worms. I've tried to feed him different types of greens so far: Red Leaf, Green Leaf, anacharis, he won't eat any of it. Bought some frozen turtle jello shots at Petco and he won't eat that either. Should I try the cold love approach and just keep trying till he eats? Don't want to starve him though any suggestions?

Try using a veggie clip. It's found in the fish section in pet stores. It is a plastic clip that holds it in place. I wouldn't try tough lough yet, but cut down on the pellets.
