I think a lot of people underestimate the stress fish are under during shipping. It can take a few days for them to start eating normally after bringing them home in a bag from a LFS. 2-3 days in a bag is another story.
Toothless came in from Austin Texas, I'm in Houston. I've had him for... 2-3 weeks I think? It's about that time. He was eating just fine, fully adjusted, he was doing so well, his tail is healing. I mean, even RIGHT now he is swimming and acting fine but he looks thinner .. I offer food twice a day and maybe he'll eat one feeding once a week maybe twice a week. I don't know what else to do. I've given pellets and blood worms and he won't eat either of them.
