If it were me, I would get that qt tank and have it standing by ready.
If the fish stop eating that usually means something is going on.
Besides you will them have a qt for future fish.

Well its been 2+ weeks now. He is still scratching but not as often. And the only thing he is eating is stuff of the rocks. I have tryed krill, formula 2 frozem, formula 1 pellets, frozen mysis shrimp, and live brine. He does not touch nothing. I dont know whateles to do.

Try soaking his food in garlic juice. It has been known to spur a feeding response.

Is the fish in the QT being treated or still in the main?

Cheers

Not having spots does not mean the absence of parasites but conversely flashing does not automatically imply there is one either.

Have you noticed anything else aside from the occassional scratching and poor response to prepared foods? Unusual lines, white patch's, excess slime, cloudy appearance, greying eyes, red spots, fin rot, abnormal swimming patterns and so on?

Could you also post all your water specs in detail?

Cheers
Steve

No nothing. He just swims around looking for food on the rock. All of my water specs are ph 8.2 amm 0 nitrite 0 nitrate 10 and my alk is good. There is no slime or any other spots. Just flashing.
