fish not eating

hi all,

i know this is a betta forum, so i may not have much luck, but i know i might get a fast response here, so here goes...

i have a betta and 8 neon tetras, all live hapily in a 15 litre tank with light, fliter, pump and heater.

one of my tetras was sucked into the filter and as since (almost two weeks) has been rather distant from the others, not always swimming in the school etc, and i noticed the other day, that i never see him eat.

today i have isolated him with another tetra into a separate container in hopes that i can get him to eat.

any other ideas as to what i can do?

any help would be very much appreciated.

Check the water parameters....some people have told me that maybe that specific tetra is subordinate...so its at the bottom of totem there...Maybe he is injured..I would seperate him from the others...research more on his symptoms

His "incident" may have damaged his digestive tract. You haven't seen him eat, but have you seen him poop?
