Good to hear he is getting better.....I would hold off on food for a day and then offer a pellet-remove if he doesn't eat it...and keep trying....they can go awhile without food so don't worry....I would not offer any freeze dried foods until he eats his pellet...frozen food is fine

Him taking the pellet in his mouth and spiting it out is a good sign...at least he is tasting/checking it out

Thanks! If he does not eat tomorrow I will try frozen food. It's a bit complicated to keep that in the office, guess I'll have to pack two lunches :)
Here are some before, during and after photos of Poe. The first picture is before the illness, the middle one during and the last one today. He is obviously not fully recovered but doing much better. Thanks again Oldfishlady and Bettaluver4evr.

Final update (hopefully): he is now eating crushed pellets! I think he just could not swallow properly for a while there. His fins have also improved from yesterday, only minor clamping is present now. I hope he will be restored to his initial splendor within a week. To the untrained eye, he looks great even now :)
I will stop updating this thread for now, just wanted to share the whole experience so that maybe people in similar situations in the future can benefit.
Thanks again for the great advice folks!
