so a few more questions...
is there anything visibly wrong? any spots, streaks, patches?
anything hanging off of him?
If not it's really hard to say, I have one sort of doing the same thing. I have been giving him salt baths... not much else I know to do with him.

Oops I stand corrected...

You will definitely want to clean his bowl out at least every 3 days until you get your 5 gallon. In a 1g bowl, toxic wastes can build up to a dangerous amount in only a matter of days, so you will have to clean it more frequently to keep the ammonia at a safe level.

I am having the exact same problem with my FLARE. Only this has been going on for at least 2 weeks. Hasn't eaten in two weeks...I mean i even hold a blood worm in his face and he just twitches and jerks like you described like a seizure. any time i barely touch the tank he freaks out. I have posted my questions on here "twitching and not eating" and no response.

SO anybody have any ideas or suggestions???
Thanks!

Like I asked k stiles, I need your tank size, temperature, how often you clean it, how much water you change and any water stats you can give me.
