I tried putting him in a separate tank to see if he would eat then but he became to skitish and wouldn't eat so I put him back with my betta and waited a day and even today he still won't eat. I tried feeding him but he ignored the food and then he swam away and rolled over onto his back. I had to flip him back over to right him because he couldn't do it himself. I did get him from a petshop and have only had him maybe close to 2 weeks.
