He has not eaten since I brought him home last week, although the fin rot/clampage has recovered quickly. I have tried 2 kinds of pellets, 3 kinds of flakes, freeze dried bloodworms, and even live mosquito larvae, which have ALWAYS worked for me when dealing with picky fish...
I can't get to the store until tomorrow (maybe frozen bloodworms or something else would help?), any other suggestions to coax him to eat?
