He Eats! Finally!

Okay, so one of my bettas (as you might've seen in the Diseases and Emergencies section) Louie wouldn not eat. He would refuse the pellet, seeing it, and swimming right past it. He didn't eat for 3 weeks (i fed him bloodworms a couple of times though). He was getting very thin, and I was freaking out. I though he was literally not going to make it. He was in a 20G. Oldfishlady recommended I put him in something a little smaller, as he has no tank mates and might be nervous with all the space. I didn't have anything bigger than a 3G plastic tub, so put some gravel, and put some decor and plants in there. He didn't eat food for the next 3 days, but he actually tried to (instead of ignoring it) and today I added some more plants and decor and tried feeidng him again, and the first 2 times he spit out the food, but he actually ate it and I'm so unbelievably happy that he seems to be doing better! I just posted this because I wnated to celebrate his recovery from not eating.
