My water is fine, the tank has been up over a year and has a pair of clowns in it, i drip accumulated him just like i do every fish, he ate the 6 ghosts at my lfs 5 days ago and i would give water but i ran out of testers last week. I do 20 percent changes every 10 days juust like i have yearly. My lfs says he we be fine just give him time to settle

Agreed. With a meal like that he may still be full

id attempt to get a good look at him. make sure hes full colored and his eyes are clear. also watch his gill movement. it should be nice and steady. if its fast or exaggerated, somethings up. also check out his belly. thats the tell-tale sign i use for feeding. if its sleek and not distinguishable from the remaining body, he is prob hungry. im currently goingon month 2 of keepnig a fuzzy dwarf and i had the same issue when i got him. it took seven days for him to eat. now he eats everyother day like clockwork

I feed mine frozen mysis shrimp. Started him on ghost shrimp until he started eating when I fed other fish, mysis shrimp. I can hand feed him too!

I found the frozen krill to be the easiest to ween mine onto because of the size of them. You should try some live feeders again just to get him going. He's hungry by now...
