I'm a longtime reader of fishlore and just registered to ask this question. I recently bought a couple of sunset thick lipped gouramis. I put them in separate tanks. One is eating fine and adjusted, but the other has yet to eat (it's been 3 days). I'm worried about it and it's the more brilliantly colored one (bright gold like a copper betta). It's in a moderately planted (plenty of floating plants and tons of polysperma) 46 gallon bowfront tank with 3 adult balloon mollies, a ton of molly fry, 8 cories and a bristlenose and clown pleco. The mollies are not agressive to it, but as you probably know, they are pigs. I've tried floating or dropping food - flakes, daphnia, bloodworms - right next to it and he looks like he wants to eat (sort of mouths like he's going for it) but then swims away. He hides half the time but does swim around and his colors are brilliant, no visible signs of disease. WAter parameters are what you would expect O ammonia 0 nitrites 20-30 nitrates depending on weekly water change, temperature 80, no salt, ph 7.2 way too low for the mollies I know. I am obsessed with this fish so I've been watching it and trying to coax it to eat but nothing. I feed the plecos and cories sinking wafers and I even turn the light on occasionally to check if he's eating any of that but I'm pretty sure he's not. Does anyone have any hints on how I can get him to eat. I know 3 days isn't worrisome but I have an ominous feeling. He was in a tank with a ton of blue gouramis, gold gouramis, dwarf gouramis (really overstocked) so he's probably traumatized, but he's 4" long, mature male and the biggest thing in my tank by far so I'm hoping he bounces back and eats.
