Rune is not a happy boy.

He's not eating, and it's been this way for weeks. He may be nibbling here and there (that I can't see) but I've had to clean out his food after a few minutes every time.

I change his water every 3 days, he's in a 2 gallon bowl and I salt and condition properly. And my room temp is 30.

I have alternated pellets and flakes and fed him no bloodworms in case he was holding out for them...to try and break the habit as I've done with a few of my smishies.

His physical appearance seems the same he's just lethargic. I've never had a fish hold out on the food this long it's really worrying me.

Not sure what else I can do.

And of course when I mixed bloodworms with the flakes I have he picked out all the bloodworm bits and gorged on them leaving the flakes floating. STUBBORN!!

I'm gonna keep trying the mix adding less and less worms... see if I can fool him.

What a little booger.
