So today I came to the room to turn the light to the fish tank on and the little guy was out from under the filter and swam up for food! He still couldn't open his mouth enought to get a pellet in but I crushed a few up and turned off the filter so the food would stay still and I believe he got a little but into his mouth. He rests on the leaf hammock near the top of the tank when he is taking a breather between feeding attempts.
I think he is going to make it !! Thank you everyone for the advise
Today I visit the pet store to pick up a little tank thing that can keep him up at the top on the fish tank. Also will take a water sample with me. Anything else I should pick up while I'm at it?
