The new guy is real skinny...

Do you guys think it would be ok to feed him small amount say 2-4 flakes 3 times a day until he puts on a little weight? I have never seen a fish as skinny as him before. I bet they did not feed him much at all in the 3 weeks he was at Walmart.

I have frozen Daphnia here and I can bring some frozen bloodworm from home. I don't have brine shrimp but I could get some frozen at petsmart on lunch.

Watch out, I could be internal Parasites. But, see if he starts to fatten up soon before you give him meds.
