my little fishy is not eating.

So...Mordechai is sickly and so he is not eating. I would try soaking his pellets in garlic juices but i dont have any garlic handy. Can I use garlic powder? I got him a heater today and i can tell he likes it since he just sits right next to it (my room is in the basement and its pretty chilly down there). Should I just keep trying to feed him pellets and see if the heater helps him start eating? I tried feeding him a pea but he was not amused.

If life gives you melons you may be dyslexic.

do you know for sure he is sick? Post his symptoms and maybe someone can narrow it down and help you further. Is he a new fish? How long has he not been eating. I don't know anything about garlic though...

yeah im positive he is sick. I posted a thing in the emergencies section and they helped me a lot but here is a picture anyways. I have had him for 2 years without him ever getting sick and he hasnt been eating since about tuesday last week.
