I got the plecocaine in the mail today (which is what his breeder fed him on), and tried to feed it, but he won't even go near that! It's like crushed up pellet size, so the size is not an issue. I tried crushed pellets too, no go. And garlic soaked pellets, no go. Garlic soaked crushed pellets....still nothing. (These attempts were at different times during the past few days.) I stopped giving him bloodworms also, not that he'd eat a lot of those anyways, and that still didnt entice him to eat anything.
I don't know what to do, he's starting to look thin from the top. He doesn't act strange, I've tried stimulating him with visible females, just flares, but no eating after still. I take the cardboard divider down from between his and another males tank, he flares but it still doesn't stimulate him to want to eat. Today I caved and gave him bloodworms, but he only ate 2.
I've had him for 16 days and he's maybe eaten 8 bloodworms the entire time, including the 2 he ate today.
Any other feeding suggestions? I'm getting really worried that he's going to die eventually from starvation.
