Exclamation Looking for some more help!

Hi, I posted a thread a few days ago about my little guy Rainbow not eating or acting right. I made some changes and got him a 5 gallon tank with working filter and 25 watt heater and so far he seems to be doing better but he still is very skinny and overall looks very sickly. I still can't get him to eat his food. He hasn't eaten for over a week and I am very concerned. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated I am still very new at this.
