Think it was suppose to say "try feeding"


Feed food that will sink to the bottom. Maybe your fish will be able to grab some and get make to a healthy size. But it looks very skinny and unhealthy right now.

I use a steak injector to get food into my gobys mouth it took some training but it works. Your guy is really skinny I would find a way to spot feed ASAP.
