Though I am hoping once I get the brine shrimp he will eat more. I have been trying to feed him his pellets and he is just not taking to them. Maybe it is because of the tank change today :/ What do you think?

Got the shrimp. He goes to eat them but he keeps spitting them back out. Some of them are really big so that is understandable but even the little ones he is doing it. I don't know if he just doesn't want them or what. I don't want him to starve. I have been fasting him since he started this [so about a week or so.] So I know he is hungry, then why is he spitting it back out? I hope the tumor/liver isn't gonna cause him to stop eating :/

Alright after a while I got him to eat a couple of shrimp. Though I think most of them are too big for him. So I have to pick out small ones with a dropper and feed him that way.

I'm sorry to hear he's having trouble eating. Usually the tumor/liver doesn't affect their appetite. However, he won't starve just yet. Bettas can go for weeks without eating so he'll be okay in that regard.

Let me know if he gets any other symptoms or anything else that might indicate a new problem. Hang in there, Umineko, you're doing great with him.

I got him to eat a little more. In total he probably ate about 5 or 6. I don't think I should feed him much more. Don't want to overfeed him. Will probably try and see if I can get him to eat again in the morning.
