Well, I'm not sure if he's sick or just underfed and lethargic... Also, do you have an idea of how many little pellets I should feed him?

He could be all three. The first step is getting him clean, warm water. Does he have a heater in his tank?
Sometimes you can constipate them if you feed them too much when they are used to hardly ever being fed at the pet store. I'd start by giving him one pellet, and maybe give him 3 or 4 spread out throughout the day.

Ok I'll try to do that. Unfortunately he doesn't have a heater. I didn't even know I was getting him so I hadn't had a thing prepared. I think I may have an extra 2-10 gallon heater but the tank he's in now is around 1 and a half I think and I didn't fill it up all the way because I wanted to make it easier for him to get to the top. So it might bake him...

Ok, but I don't think that's something I can get from my local store. I've never seen it before.

I'll look but if I have to order online, would it get here fast enough to help him?
