His tail is still clamped but he eats pretty well :) I've fed 5 pellets total today. 2 in the morning 3 after school. I guess I'll just up his amount until he starts gaining weight. How do I tell if he's digested it?

mystery baby scared me just now... i just came home and he was lying still in the bottom corner of his tank... i moved the water a bit and he didnt move... but when i stuck my finger in he started swimming... phew... fed him 2 more crushed pellets and *just checked* there are a few (what look like) tiny poops on the bottom of the tank. fins looked a little less clamped at first but look clamped again now :/

Look at him before feeding in the morning.
Later look at his belly after feeding. It should be fatter.
When you feed again, is his belly still fat or is it thin like before he ate in the morning. Thin means he has digested his food and can take more per feeding.

BTW, after feeding my fry often looks as if they swallowed a marble. BUT REMEMBER: I don't feed pellets and don't know their effect. My food (except shrimp) are fairly easy to digest.
