Okay, here's an abridged thing for those who don't know about Rev'.
I got him from Newbettas a while back, he arrived on the 31st of March, and he has not perked up since I got him.
I did acclimate him first (not just on temperature, but the water too) and kept him in one of those box things that petstores use to catch fish. He was in clear view of Jade (my marble CT/HM/DT (whatever he is, lol)), and he only flared once at Jade (when he flared at him, otherwise Jade leaves Rev alone). After that, he kept up his air-eating habits.
When I was sure he was acclimated to his water, I put him in his personal tank. He seemed to perk up a little, exploring things and slithering around the bottom to look at the decorations... after he got used to it, he went right back to air-eating and floating. He doesn't float on his side, though.
Since I've had him, he's eaten at least three bloodworms total, but not on the same day. He hasn't eaten anything in the past few days now.
Any more information needed, please let me know. I'm really worried about Revenant. D:
