This might sound a little strange but what is your ammonia, nitrates and SG? I am wondering if there is something wrong with your water that is stressing it out so it isn't eating.

I hope you mean 1.023 I have never had a fish that didn't eat something usually they are little beggars within a week. If it is wild caught you might have a problem to get it to eat prepared foods. If you have real live rock and sand it might be picking at pods and things like that.

Obv I meant 1023 lol and he's pretty big like 4 inches the only thing I can think of is I had a snowflake eel and it took a bite out of one of his fins so obv that eel isn't in my tank anymore but that incident happend like a week ago I didn't know if that would actually have him spooked still to this day I guess its a possibility tho
