It's never a good sign when a fish doesn't eat. In reading back over the posts, he's been through a lot of changes and may be coming down with something. STABILITY is the key to fish keeping. Temperature
fluctuations and too much handling and change can stress fish out big time. Keep your eyes open fior parasitic infestations (Ick) or bacterial diseases (clamped fins/ fin & tail rot) and treat accordingly.
