There are a couple of different methods to get the green tea extract. When I made it, I would fill my water change bucket the day before a water change, then I'd condition as usual, and then I would let the tea bag steep overnight. The next day I'd discard the old tea bag and do my water change.

Since your guy is already set up and you don't want stress him by giving him another water change so soon, I think you could probably just steep the tea bag directly in his tank for a few hours, until the water gets darker.

Just make sure you get decaf green tea that doesn't have any other ingredients added to it.

i saw before you start hitting him with teas and frozen warms, just let him rest in some nice warm clean water, offer some pellets tomorrow and see how it takes it, he is probably in shock, or the fish equal of it

If he pulls through I can already tell he'll be VERY beautiful. Maybe you should stick a pellet or bloodworm with your finger in the water and wiggle it around? Maybe he'll get a bit of interest.

To feed frozen bloodworms, wear gloves as some people have allergic reactions. I just break off a tiny piece (careful not to overfeed!) of the block they're frozen in and drop it into the tank. It melts almost instantly, and all my fish devour it in seconds. It's so cute! You can feed these once or twice a week as a meal replacement. I'd be surprised if your guy didn't go after them. (:

I go about feeding frozen foods in a lightly different manner, of course having 11 fish makes a big difference. I have a small container/dish just a small piece of plastic I've thouroughly washed and rinsed. A spoon, and an eyedropper. I break/cut off a small piece of the frozen food, at a spoonful (or more, depending on the size of the piece). I let it sit for a minute, then use the eyedropper to feed the frozen bloodworms. Both boys and girls attack the eyedropper and are quite happy.

hi people...just wanna update about the fish and ask a question also

he still alive and acting like a normal fish now...but is very difficult to get him to eat..he only go for the food that is sinking...he would eat the pellets if i soak it up real good...like...get it super soft...and i am aware that the nutrient from the pellet dissolved as soon as it hit the water...so i've been feeding him about 3 pellets, 3 times per day(9-10 pellets total) ...is this a good idea? i dont want to over feed him but i also dont want him to be malnutrition
