Thank you everyone for posting about when your fish started eating!!
I fed mine a couple of pellets this morning, and then left for work (about 8am). I just got home a few minutes ago, and tried giving him some pellets (they're all I have for now). He goes up, appears to sniff at the food, and then ignores it. He's *got* to be hungry! I only fed him like 2 pellets this morning, so he can't have eaten all day. I don't think he has anything against the pellets, as he's eaten them before. I don't think he's upset, as he's a more vibrant colour now than when I got him. I *think* he's blowing bubbles (as there are rows of tiny bubbles on the surface of the water, and he goes up to the surface and does something with his mouth). Just for the life of me, I can't really figure out why he wouldn't eat.
Edit: Maybe he's shy about eating in front of me? When I got home, there were no pellets. And after putting some in, he'll still go up and look at them, and appear to want to eat them, but then he swims away from them again *confused*
