I got him a few days ago and he was doing fine, but just recently he stopped eating, what can I do. I fed him frozen bloodworms, because that was all I had that he would eat, and now I am trying to introduce tropical flakes.

What size tank, what tankmates, and what are the water parameters?

10 gallon, I have two females coming tomorrow, and we don’t have a water testing kit. All I know is that the ph is 7 and I have conditioned water

Did you cycle the tank?

No, I did not, I am a noob to the industry, but I am wondering why he suddenly stopped eating. Don’t judge me I don’t have a filter

Now my fish does not even take interest in the food, she is obsessed with swimming around the heater and swimming with her reflection.

I would rehome that honey and get a filter and cycle your tank other wise it will probably die

then I suggest you do 30% water changes everyday.
I'm also 13

doing a 30% waterchange is not hard. just take out 30% water and then fill it back up with water. make sure its is dechlorinated.
moss ball won't do much. if you heavliy plant your tank( a ton of plants) then you won't need a to do 30% water changes.

yes you need to.
Oh I do condition my water, I was just wondering if you did, so my plan for changing water is to always have a few gallons of conditioned water next to my tank, than take out 30% every day and replace it with conditioned water. I don’t have to worry about lowering my temperature bacause I have a heater.


wheres my clout
