Does betta look unhealthy?

So, Neptune, my delta tail betta male hasn't been eating at all. We just got him a few days ago. He swims around a bit, but he doesn't do much. Ever since Saturday, I have put food in his tank, but he just won't eat it. It's a Tetra 1.5 gallon tank...

Does he look unhealthy? Are there any signs that he is perhaps sick?

he may still be getting use to his new home but if he doesn't have a heater then you need to get one!!

he doesn't look unhealthy but I'm not an expert on sick fish...

If he isn't used to the brand of food you feed him then that might also be the problem but he'll adjust soon!!

OK, so he is in a 1.5 gallon tank and has been there for a few days and he is not eating..

Lets start with a few simple questions...

Have you done a water change on the tank since putting him in there??

What water conditioner are you using, and are you using the correct dose..

Does he have a heater?? What is his water temperature??
