I forgot to answer: I've had him for 10 months.
He still only eats if the food is thrown on top of his head. And even then he won't eat more than 2 pellets at a time.

He's still in the same situation. Only uses found inches of his tank, always on top, eats if food is thrown on top of his head, if the food floats away he won't be interested in it.

But is it normal? I think that means they can manage, but ignoring food that's thrown in your face for so many days?

Thank you for responding though. I just went and tried giving him pieces of frozen peas, I read it can be good if the fish refuses to eat. He didn't eat any, but he acted SO WEIRD! He has been very inactive, just there laying for the whole day, and how he acted completely insane for like, 15 minutes. I have pictures and videos.
He was rubbing himself on the gravel (specially around the peas), and proceeded to spend whole minutes head-down into the gravel, just standing there. His gills seem to be moving way too much, but I'm no expert. After this 15 or so minutes of going crazy, he went to the bottom corner under the lowest floor and hid, no moving, for many many minutes until I stopped watching.

There has to be something up with him.

Pictures of him standing still:



Video is being uploaded.
