I've had this fish for about a year now, and I've been trying really hard to be a good parent for it. He is in a 5 gallon filtered, heated tank. I noticed a few months ago that he was getting kind of chubby and so I cut back on his food. Cut to now- he's gotten really skinny and lethargic. Every time I come up to the tank he begs for food and I try to feed him, but it seems like he can't see or can't find the food. This morning he actually jumped out of the water at my hand, but didn't eat any of the food I put in. I am going to try again when I get home to see if he'll eat. Should I start trying to feed him more than once a day, or later in the day? Right now I get up when it is still dark out and have to leave for school. I can feed him when I get home or after dinner, when he is more active, and this was my plan, but I wanted some extra advice. tl;dr - I am going to change my feeding time for my fish so that he eats more, but I'm worried about how skinny he got and need to know what I can do to get him more active.
