    Welcome to Fishlore!

    I have no experience with red devils, but several members do and I'm sure they'll see this thread soon and be able to help you out.

    6 prawns a day is a lot of food.
    What do you normally fed him everyday?

    I would say Garlic juice mixed with the food.

    I guess he isn't that concerned with it after all.

    Probably overfed. Do a 25% water change and see if that livens him up. A female could also spark him up.
