How many days? The copper may damper his appetite. Try lacing the food in garlic juice.

Jaiden:

I'm currently having this same problem with my clown. Last night, I dropped in some Formula Two (the new formula that contains 2% garlic) and I saw him at least TRY to eat, so I'm hoping mine is snapping out of it.

When QShark says "garlic juice", is this something you can buy in a store, or do you have to make it yourself? I would think straight garlic would be way too strong.

I use Kent Garlic Extreme on every once in a while. My fish go nuts when I soak their food in it!

HE ATE! I gave him some live brine and he's snapping them up. I'm not sure whether he or I are happier.
