Not eating etcetc

So my new boy from Thailand still isn't eating. He was shipped on the 25th and he got here last Friday and I started offering food on Saturday. He shows zero interest in it.

I read garlic juice is good but.. I have a jar of minced garlic in my fridge. Could I take a little of the liquid it is stored in and use that? Or do I need to go out and buy like, garlic juice in its own bottle or something?

He is still adjusting. It's quite common for them to go a week or more without eating when first arriving in their new homes. Give him time. Some have had fish go 2-3 weeks without eating after their arrival.

Alrighty. He's very, very active but I think that might be more to stress than anything . He does the fish equivalent of pacing back and forth in front of the tank when I walk by.
